Treasure Island

A Poet? No Way.!


Who would want to be a Poet?
They might think that you're insane,
For you go around reciting,
Twirling like a Weathervane.

    Here's my thoughts on the topic:

    In Defence of Verse
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Why not pay heed?
    Why not indeed!
    To the topic of rhythm and rhyme;
    For it pleases the ear,
    And pleases the mind,
    And takes up little time. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
