    World classics are great literary assets of the world ever. The great novel Hunchback of Notredame written by the great novelist Victor hugo is one among them. The character he created in this novel Quassimodo, a deformed differently abled hunch back himself, Esmaralda, the beautiful street dancing girl, can't be forgot by a reader of this novel. It is actually the story of the depressed souls of the differently able man and his emotions as a human being.II think that as long as literary interests are there this novel will continued to be interested by the world community and great world classics are ever relevant to society since the stories are the actual incidents happening in communities of world wide which have no boundary or ethnicity. The real human being is the real meaning of a world classic.

    Angel's fear

    No form of love is perfect
    or wrong,
    Let's love, no matter
    how many skies
    may fall, or winds
    get stormed.
    Let's not make our nights
    full of regrets.
    listen! darkness is playing
    song of the instincts.

    p.s. worked and reposted.

      I really like this John. I always do a couple of double takes while reading your work (I consider that a good thing) , and in the end it's pretty satisfying. Good job!

    i've had it up to HERE ^
    with these dang audios attached to my poems.

    we aren't given a box to click NO AUDIO
    when we submit a poem.

    i notice many of my recent poems are now popping up with audio
    and usually it's when i leave a poets note.
    is that the trick to get rid of that biz?leave the poets note blank?

    no more audio, or i'll automatically cuss! and dude, i'm a Quaker
    we say heavens to betsy 'n raise barns with our stars 'n garters!
    hells bells,
    are still ringing
    on this site as of late.

    k, i'm done. i'm grabbing my pitchfork and finding a dang potluck.

    It is in the subtlety
    And not the blunt insult,
    The threat and not the onslaught;

    A Gift from the Romantic

    The implied and not the explicit.

    It is in the first gleaning,
    remembered scents of Spring
    And not the direct,

    Overhead heat of Summer.

    The autumnal dread
    And not the dead of Winter;
    The sweet dream of sleep

    And not the bleak morning after.

    When somewhere between the gift,
    And it’s crumpled paper wrapping,
    Lie an infinity

    Of finite things to be chosen:

    But of a thousand choices
    if I must choose one,
    I would settle, instead,

    For the choice and forego the choosing…

    Not alone, actually a procession of poets are crossing the time, to express it's warm feel much poor by expression. Yet the crowd makes noise of breaking loneliness.

    I do not love you except because I love you. A beautiful poem of Pablo Neruda which I got a chance to read in Poem hunter.com. A great poem from the great poet.

      Do I Love You? Do I love you? Yes, of course I do. Did I always? Yes, of course I did. It's when you ask: 'Then, why?', that I can give no answer. I simply did what I had to do. ... more

    a dog was murdered because of human beings' irrational fear....

    was he not young enough
    was he not " cute" enough
    was he not pedigreed enough

    what if these terms defined you
    would you be euthanized as well...?

    Excalibur, you were well-loved by your family and those who sought to protect you.....

    you now play in the meadow beyond the rainbow bridge...
    .knowing joy.....
    and freedom from some very confused two-leggers'
