Two Hands that Counldn't Clap


I moved my left hand around,
To achieve a thunder clapping sound.
I moved my right hand too,
To achieve a thunder clapping sound.


But as they both moved around,
Their palms refused to meet.
These hands refused to,
Dance around together.


I didn't know what to do,
So I turned on beautiful music.
These hands started to clap,
To the rhythm of rap.


I talked to both hands,
I encouraged their new liason.
I forced my clapping them.
I learned how to clap.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
