A Street Called Sadness


He lived on a street called sadness
Devoid in toto of gladness
And those who went there
Soon were filled with despair
Heaven then helped to repair
Along came a stormy banshee
And wiped all the misery to sea
This totally turned miserable sadness
To profoundly joyful new gladness
A miracle was born you see

    We probably need many more stormy banshee to turn more streets into gladness. Lovely words. Thank you (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
