0.5 cm To Mark Off The Range


Real, rear, reap, really, react, read;
Measured!
0.5 cm to mark off the range;
Crab, crap!
Reading, reach, reason, reaping, ready;
Thin, thing!
Velvet,
Thin, thing, think, thick;
Life!
Hold me out of this place;
Becuase, i am a star.
Crabs, craps!
Of your love,
Mythical touch!
Of your tender lips on mine;
Love!
Very unique and pretty.

Muse!
In my lovely garden with a call from a rabbit;
And, it came along to say hello to me.
Life!
Looking at it from the other side;
ear to ear to listen to your muse,
Year after year to learn from you.
All in!
All out;
Life!
Impossible is nothing.

Jury, injury!
The accident;
The incident,
With a fatal injury.
Life!
You can't always get what you want;
But, try to give help to the por always.

Earth!
Our lovely home;
So, why are we destroying it today with hatred and war?
Bible, able, amicable;
True love is about us,
Living on this earth to share ist resources.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
