    Dear sir/Madam:  
      How are you? My name is Richard Chan. I'm  is a student and I study at college, although I'm is your fan. you poetry is nice before I read it and the poem is called Epilogue . After I finished the reading, I have some idea about it, you give a special feeling and you said But sometime everything I write with threadbare art of my eye seems a snapshot, lurid, rapid garish, grouped, heightened from life, yet paralysed by fact and I think this poetry is about your life and you think the life is boring, no more fun. I think the life is colourful and it will be exciting. for example: when you want die, maybe you want to do something is very important at last but sometime you can't do that and you will think should be alive, it will be fine and you should believe tomorrow will be better, if you think the life is boring or exciting and you can join the adventure of find something or paint the photograph although you can do something is exciting. don't lose the faith in life, and someday I will think life is not simple and the life will be nice.  
                           Your fans: Richard Chan

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
