awaiting
death!

    I like the briefness of this poem. Truly sickness and death are two things we can't speak much about. (Report) Reply

    Yes sir, I used bears as verb (to show) not noun (animal) . Thank you for reminding! (Report) Reply

    i suppose this is supposed to be a serious and maybe sad poem, but i could not help thinking (after reading bears) about the fairy tale little red riding hood. in it a wolf, disguised as grandma, in grandma's bed, awaits an unsuspecting young granddaughter. the wolf plans to lure the girl close enough to the bed that the wolf can grab her and eat her! but i think Marvin may have been using bears as a verb, not a noun. who knows?
    i'll try to have time to look at some more of these little poems. thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
