    Hello everyone. I'm new to poems. Recently I've written some and I really need someone to give comments so that I can improve. You know, being a newbie needs guidance. At this stage as an inexperienced writer, I am totally lost because I just don't know what is right or wrong. Can anyone help this newbie? Please kindly give me comments. Thanks.

    I just joined and I am not sure what I am supposed to do. I write poetry and don't have a lot of confidence in my work. I am always interested in ways to improve my poetry and what I can read for inspiration. Thanks, Meredith

    Hey, this is about my 'Awakening of Life' poem. I have gotten at least ten hits a day on it and noone has commented. If anyone who reads this would at least rate it, that would be very much appriciated.

    My way of writing poetry has always been to go into the inner stillness touching which a spray of emotions pass before my minds eye. I feel them but I am not them; I sense them but I am apart from them. Then the emotions crystallize into words and the words arrange themselves into sentences and the poem is written. All as if by MAGIC. Those days when I dont touch the treasurehouse of 'intuition'I wander in the desert of dreary versification: beautiful perhaps but lifeless. To me the inner stillness is the fountain head of inspiration. What Says Thou, My Fellow Poet?

      I found this site [http: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abel_Meeropol]...I believe it mentions one or two other songs he wrote.

    Hey I wrote this imagery poem for an English assignment and it's one of the first poems I ever wrote. Feedback please :)

    -TRANQUIL DAY-

    Just another tranquil day
    Flowers blooming early in May
    Lying on my back watching the clouds
    Makes me just want to sigh aloud

    Oh cotton clouds of fleece
    Couldn’t be finer in Greece
    The gentle breeze blowing through my hair
    Makes my troubles dissolve in the air

    The narrow stream flowing by
    As if already heading for July
    And tiny birds are drinking out of this stream
    And I wonder if this isn’t a heavenly dream

    Such a picturesque day
    My face glowing in the sun’s rays
    If everyday could be so serene
    Then it would be heaven unseen

    anyone who posts a poem in another language should also add the english version. I might be of interest to some who love to learn new languages... :)

      This message inspired me to attempt a poem in French, with a verse translation into English. I didn't write a straight prose translation though.
