A knowledge if shared,
likely grows to abundance..
if keep to self will be lost!

    Congratulations Sir.
    One of the beautiful poem
    with very few words
    speaking with a stronger voice......Thanks. (Report) Reply

    In the playground
    at school;
    a small boy
    with a paper bag
    stuffed with sweets

    The other children
    never ask
    for share;
    the small boy
    never offered

    Inside
    the cavernous mouth;
    inflamed gums,
    tiny teeth as black as
    old grave stones (Report) Reply

    So much contained in so few words. Awesome! Knowledge hoarded and hidden is nothing but fools gold. (Report) Reply

    short and sweet...that's wisdom compressed! Just imagine if all poets kept their best poems to themselves, what our world would be like... (Report) Reply

    This is wisdom reduced to a mere few words - but wisdom nevertheless, and thank you for sharing this Marvin in so precise a way that it will likely be remembered too........10 from Fay along with warm wishes from Cornwall U.K. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
