Elizabeth`s storry is amazing... on sunday I got a brand new Honda from earning $9023 this last four weeks and even more than 10-k this past month. with-out any doubt it's the most financially rewarding I've ever had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much straight away was bringing home over $71... per-hr. I use this great link........

Best Poem of Elizabeth Bishop

Sestina

September rain falls on the house.
In the failing light, the old grandmother
sits in the kitchen with the child
beside the Little Marvel Stove,
reading the jokes from the almanac,
laughing and talking to hide her tears.

She thinks that her equinoctial tears
and the rain that beats on the roof of the house
were both foretold by the almanac,
but only known to a grandmother.
The iron kettle sings on the stove.
She cuts some bread and says to the child,

It's time for tea now; but the child
is watching the teakettle's small hard tears
dance like ...

Little Exercise

For Thomas Edwards Wanning


Think of the storm roaming the sky uneasily
like a dog looking for a place to sleep in,
listen to it growling.

Think how they must look now, the mangrove keys
lying out there unresponsive to the lightning
