Thoughts Poetic [A Villanelle]


I have thought so many times
Without letting out a sigh
Nevertheless, I was right some times

I would hear far-away chimes
Playing in my head; yet so nigh
I have thought so many times

However much I tried rhymes
Mama openly rebuked it as a lie
Nevertheless, I was right some times

From rooftops watching mimes
I kept giving poetry a try
I have thought so many times

Distancing myself from copy crimes
Cost me chances of sharing thieved pie
Nevertheless, I was right some times

Now my talent is in its primes
Like the flesh of broiler’s thigh
I have thought so many times
Nevertheless, I was right some times

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
