Your Name In Your Names


There you are,
Your first name caught in the energy of the next,
Your second name holding the most height of all,
Your middle name atop the centerpiece of a nothingness,
Your penultimate name standing as the crown jewel,
Your last name ending the names in silence,
There you are.

    Now this is quite unique. It is also more common in the modern forms
    I find so disappointing. So I may not be fair to this poem. Its clarity
    is lacking because I cannot reconcile the second and middle names.
    This may be my undoing, but I am a reader and I may not be the last
    to not see this reconcillation.Beyond thismystery, Is the basic truth that I seek here. There must be one, but if I cannot find it. It is not there. Still,
    it is well conceived artistically and must be accorded due creative merit.
    I shall do so by giving it the greatest benefit I can. A 6.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
