    This poem is very well written. It was submitted in 2003 (11 years ago) , so I wonder if Erin Belieu feels the same way more than a decade later.... We humans are multifaceted - oceans, for sure - and the sunlight bounces off the surface, and it also penetrates the surface to an extent. This poem is a vivid study of our iniquities. Has Ms. Belieu answered her poem with a study of our strengths? I hope so, because she's a skilled poet. (Report) Reply

    Good poem. You see the opposite side of children than I do.
    When I write it is of their innocence, beauty, love of life that
    I capture in a poem. Thank you for letting me face the side
    of them that you see. Feel free to read my poems if you like.

    I saw a child entering my office building this morning
    arms up-raised in victory:
    Her mom let her pass
    thru the revolving doors
    on her own. (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!

I slew a worm the other day—
