Exeter


Blue sky,
Singing birds
Flying every where,
Bright trees,
Dewy flowers
Spreading all over the place,
Different is the town
From any site on earth,
It is very special indeed,
Exeter
taught me to replace
Loving human beings
With loving sceneries
Of the countryside;
It made me
Change my view
About whom my
emotion should shower
A town never postpones love,
Or does not like to rush
It does not say hush
To the beats of the heart
And prefer to plan
Instead of reacting spontaneously

Exeter is a great teacher
Like my supervisor Ella,
Who taught me how to analyze accurately,
Exeter made me write poesy
About land,
Thou should be jealous from Exeter,
Not from a radio program;
From an interview
Made with me about
My book of poetry
Exeter took me away from thee
It erased my pain,
Cuddled my brain,
And here I am writing poetry again.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
