I am still single
It's better to have no wife
Than have Xanthippe

    Well, i am 24 and you 45. you are a master in rime. dont you like women? if you love a woman or marry her, you will explore another genre of poetry. does she always create hopelessness? at midnight when there is storm outside and rain falls, god can be replaced by a woman, your ladylove. i think she will give you the message, The ultimate truth of life. will heaven be too far from your hut?
    please pardon my audacity. do reply. please read my small collection of poems. i think those poems bespeak your very thoughts.918293905695 (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

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