Birthday Poem

Happy birthday
The festive occasion
Wishing me well
This gaping greedy hole
Too deep for an almond tree

Wonderful birthday
I’m the oldest in my family
The rest have died
Seventy two years old
Am I immortal?

Blissful birthday
Carefree October month
A drifting ice floe
Breaking up in the ocean
Who will rescue me now?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
