Forever

Rating: 2.9
"Forever": 'tis a single word!
Our rude forefathers deemed it two:
Can you imagine so absurd
A view?

"Forever"! What abysms of woe
The word reveals, what frenzy, what
Despair! "For ever" (printed so)
Did not.
It looks, ah me! how trite and tame!

The rational bidding of 'for' and 'ever' also stirs the emotional twinge when it grows as 'forever' in the end... And whomsoever to bind that, did it for a good reason I believe... A witty verbal repartee..! ! Great write! !

It is a wonderful analytical poem on the word - forever! Whether it is forever or for ever, it doesn't make any difference! Likewise there are words like sunrise, sunset, nowhere!

Very clever commentary on grammar by Mister Calverly - - perhaps we should rename him Cleverly. This piece is much more thought-provoking and less frivolous than it appears at first glance, and deserves a much higher rating than the 5.7 out of ten given by the 38 voters so far.
