Writing a poem is not about bringing some words together to create some charming sentences. It's so much deeper than that. Writing poetry is a bridge that allows people to express their feelings and make others live every single word they read. Poetry is to educate people, to lead them away from hate to love, from violence to mercy and pity. Writing poetry is to help this community better understand life and live it more passionately. PoemHunter.com contains an enormous number of famous poems from all over the world, by both classical and modern poets. You can read as many as you want, and also submit your own poems to share your writings with all our poets, members, and visitors.
Let those who're fond of idle tricks,
Of throwing stones, and hurling bricks,
And all that sort of fun,
Now hear a tale of idle Jim,
That warning they may take by him,
Nor do as he has done.
In harmless sport or healthful play
He did not pass his time away,
Nor took his pleasure in it;
For mischief was his only joy:
No book, or work, or even toy,
Could please him for a minute.
A neighbour's house he'd slyly pass,
And throw a stone to break the glass,
And then enjoy the joke!
Or, if a window open stood,
He'd throw in stones, or bits of wood,
To frighten all the folk.
If travellers passing chanced to stay,
Of idle Jim to ask the way,
He never told them right;
And then, quite harden'd in his sin,
Rejoiced to see them taken in,
And laugh'd with all his might.
He'd tie a string across the street,
Just to entangle people's feet,
Expect nothing. Live frugally
become a stranger
To need of pity
Or, if compassion be freely
Take only enough
Stop short of urge to plead
Then purge away the need.
when a misfortune knocks
on your front door
instead of 'kicking out'
so that we have breakfast
to stay freely
in sweet home
Jesus, So Dignified Yet So Humble
Our God is too unusual to be understood
He is too complex to comprehend
If in Jesus we can do all things
What do we fear?
If He makes us conquerors
Who and what can stop us?
and having one winter each;
Spring is far behind!
Courage conquers all
Victory is not by chance
Triumph is not through luck
Success is not for the dreamers
We learn best
You can still shine
You can still sparkle
Don't be deterred by your family
Education, age, or any other scary signs
Commitment is a weapon
Which reveals a person's resolve
The will, fortitude and fervour
To pursue prized projects
The ULTRA MAG PRINCE to me
Is someone I would like to be,
Defending freedom shore to shore
Much like his father even more.
The truth in Jesus sets free
The fact flashes your current form
In Christ the truth forces out the facts
For Jesus knows no impossibilities
Well. when I tripped over
Over a four-leaf clover,
I knew my whiskey
Drinking days were over.
Lonely road of the modern world.......
From east to west
And from north to south
Is absolutely deserted and secluded,
This is food!
Food to your heart,
Food to your mind,
Food to your soul! ! ! !
