Poet of the River

Rookie - 10 Points (july 27 1994 / California, but move around a lot.)

4th Of July (political)


Light the match,
Ignite the fuse,
As the evening sky fills with its reds, whites, and blues.
Sparks fly, as colors light the night sky.
And the veterans play there war tune as they celebrate the freedom of liberty for which they risked their life.

    Liked your poem, and especially that you honored our veterans, whom many of us don't take the time to thank. Captain Cur (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
