    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 Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
