    Accept, dear girl, this little token,
    And if between the lines you seek,
    You'll find the love I've often spoken—
    The love my dying lips shall speak.

    One of the best ways to improve poetry writing is to read poetry. We've seen people who don't even write poetry at all come along as a result of our Poetry Dares (where we've dared them to read a certain poet for a month, or to read a poem a day for a month, or etc.) Like Carol Ann Duffy says, " The only way to write poetry is to read poetry."

    We also like Poem Stacks. We wrote about them recently in an article called " How to Write a Poem: Jealous Poem Stacks." But the short version is that you stack up words from rich sources like guidebooks to certain things such as gems, wildflowers, trees, birds. Some people end up with stacks of pretty cool words. Others find it moves them right into writing poems (better ones than they wrote before) .

    I Am Still Alive

    Covered with dust are words
    of expectation; like an ancient
    warrior whose trust in his
    sword that has failed to serve him,
    so my words are covered
    with dust for the lack of poetic
    appreciation lost in a forum of opinion
    has attempted to derail my trust in a pen.

    I am still alive and I will survive
    because I am still alive to pursue
    my quest I am still alive to express
    that which gives inspiration to
    pick up my pen to begin again.
    I am still alive.

    Like Emerson's kernel of corn I will
    till the soil and do my best to remove
    the dust from my words of poetic verse
    because they are my thoughts for me to
    express despite the vitriol of public
    opinion.

    I am still alive to pen no matter if the
    the words are covered with dust and
    offend the elite, I will lay them at
    your feet for you to remove the dust
    which covers the words, and now I have
    done my pen a service because I am still
    alive.

    If any PHer is interested in hearing me read a few poems and chatting about poetry, there's a video of an interview with me on youtube.

    Google youtube, then search Jefferson Carter poet. I look a little nuts and a lot older than I feel, but the conversation is pretty cool. Let me know what you think

    Jo tumhara hai woh tumhara hi rahenga
    use badhane koshish hamesha chahiye
    magar jo dusare ka hai usaki lalsa mat kar
    magar usase zada kamane ki koshish kar
    Jab inmain aap samadhani honge to is jagat ke aap shahensha honge
    Samadhan Taj Hamesha sarvashreshta hota hai

    THE VOICE

    Up in the vale, deep in the meadow
    She glides her way through the blue-black shadow
    She walks alone, her voice full of modest
    Singing solo, for the death of her closest
    Along with tear her face lament strain
    For her voice with a melancholy main
    Beautiful than a spring-time cuckoo
    Sweeter than an Arabian Nightingale
    Her song binds the profound valley
    Her voice, that gives bravado
    To the agonized, to the haunted.
    She gives her voice salvaging all
    For all she sang, where has she dissipate
    Long after she’s gone,
    Her song dwelled in my heart, saying never to fail
    As, even, I am fragile, but for now left to hail.

    [ HI! ! I'm a 15 year-old -girl , I just started writing poems, about 6 months ago. I 'm eager in knowing my flaws and compliments. if you have to say something about my poems kindly mention them. Thank You - Spandana ]
