POEM OF THE DAY
A Child's Laughter
ALL the bells of heaven may ring,
All the birds of heaven may sing,
All the wells on earth may spring,
All the winds on earth may bring
All sweet sounds together---
Sweeter far than all things heard,
Hand of harper, tone of bird,
Sound of woods at sundawn stirred,
Welling water's winsome word,
Wind in warm wan weather,
One thing yet there is, that none
Hearing ere its chime be done
Knows not well the sweetest one
Heard of man beneath the sun,
Hoped in heaven hereafter;
Soft and strong and loud and light,
Very sound of very light
Heard from morning's rosiest height,
When the soul of all delight
Fills a child's clear laughter.
Golden bells of welcome rolled
Never forth such notes, nor told
Hours so blithe in tones so bold,
As the radiant mouth of gold
Here that rings forth heaven.
If the golden-crested wren
Were a nightingale---why, then,
Something seen and heard of men

POEM OF THE DAY - MEMBER POEM
Fret, Fury And Calm
A soft, smooth breeze can make,
A right streamlined flame dance,
In silent, fancied tunes, and rake
All-around quiet objects to prance ,
On the wall-screen, blown up in oversize
A harsh ruthless and crude gale
Slaps down a rampant, radiant flare
Causing gloom and disaster to ail,
Those hopeful and comfort-seeking, in scare,

I am guilty
Of underrating comfortable in life
I always chased excitement
And my next adrenaline high,
Hid all the menus
Then shared the links
throughout it's grid
In A Glass
Fragile love weak like glass,
wander to break your feeble heart.
flashback, a mirror opens your eyes,
incomparable beauty soothing your soul,
I Am A Child
For money, she trades with strangers.
The woman who bore me hands me over.
Without a glance, her feet quickens down the old dirt road.
My noise becomes a silent plea.
Heart And Soul
Pinch our hearts with love, bless us God above.
Help us to be kind to all whom we find.
We are not like doves; still you show your love.
In lives of mankind, remove hateful minds.
Tanka ~ Our Love
where the earth meets sky
numerous stars of our love
like a floating galaxy
God Is Well
People say there is no God, bury Old Religion.
Our Father on his throne laughs at man's petit wisdom.
He stamps his foot, the serpent trembles hidden among the trees.
The wind stands at attention under a Deity Spell.
My skin does not believe in color:
black or in colors of varying wave length;
The Bullies -2
I treat the Bullies
Never worth an
Iota of my time.
A Trickle Of Thought- 25
No one has dominion on knowledge
They are like drizzle drops
From heavens above
Too much to grasp.
I'm in the library, at school, trying to write an article for the school paper (and I'm not even ON the school paper) . I'm on a forty-five minute deadline to complete a story someone else did poorly - on the edge of my vision I see someone step up to my table - a boy, I can tell, without looking up, from his school uniform. I'm hoping whoever it is will go away..44 minutes.
'Uhh-umm, ' I hear.
My eyes flicker up and I ID 'Everett Priestly' - one of God's less ambitious efforts.
