In To The Sword Of Destiny


In to the sword of destiny
you
throw me merciless:
ah! there is no pity
even if a Poet Seer!
destiny has favorites
power and glory
but wait! in short term
only.
For touched and goaded by
Justice continually
Destiny long term his
ancient friends discards
power and glory and
what in his frosty hand of
oblivion lay he warms to fame
and makes for unknown humans
a new shrine and a new name.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
