Treasure Island

Thomas Hardy


Thomas Hardy was a master wordsmith with many an imitator
A leading writer of his time than him few if any greater
His poems and novels still in print his work has not gone out of fashion
He kept on writing to his old age and he did pen with a passion
Great writers like him live in their work and he worked hard for his glory
And he penned many the fine poem and many the fine story
He worked hard at his writing skills and as a writer was prolific
He wrote of life and love and Nature and of things mostly pacific,
Thomas Hardy has been dead for many years but his fan club numbers are still growing
He will always have his admirers and sales of his work not slowing
He lived in an age of great writers and his works bring joy to many
One of the major writers of his time he was as good as any
When literary critics talk of British writers his name always gets a mention
A writer for all ages his works worthy of attention.

    I have almost all of the novels written by Thomas Hardy. My favorites are The Mayor of Casterbridge and Tess of the... and Jude The Obscure. I also have his collection of poems. He is such an exceptional rhymer. Thanks, Francis for writing about Hardy. Keep writing poems.... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
