No Depth That's Meant


Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Doing and saying things just to be seen.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
With a doing and saying things just to be seen.
Full of conceit from their head to their feet,
And a superficial, artificial life conceived.


Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Having no..
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Having no...
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Having no...
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no...
Depth that's meant.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,

Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
