Through me the World's tale quickeneth.

    Hats off to the flight of imagery that produced such a deep poem in most simple and a few words. (Report) Reply

    Amazing the first catch of the word Day. Amazing! Real honor PH has offered by selecting this four lines poem of the poet. Resounding loudly through the unseen conscious....... I am Day. Metaphorically excellent. (Report) Reply

    Fantastic imagery. Nicely articulated. Day is the driver of all activity on earth. Lovely poem.
