For A Thirteenth Birthday

Rating: 3.6
You have read War and Peace.
Now here is Sister Carrie,
not up to Tolstoy; still
it will second the real world:
predictable planes and levels,
pavement that holds you,
stairs that lift you,
ice that trips you,
nights that begin after sunset,
four lunar phases,
a finite house.

I have enjoyed this Poem of the Day, magnificently worded as a lady of your age, full of wisdom and the correct words, it is very interesting, full of humor, just under the skin, never skindeep, no on the contrary, I do hope that I have this deep style full of metaphors. War and Peace is a fascinating book by L.Tolstoy. Thank you for sharing this worthy poem with tints of irony. I like it very much.
