Quality Measurement


I composed a poem
Below it ‘’wow’’ was the comment
At first look,
I was, too, glad and pleased
But later I realised
The poem was not up to the mark
As it bought false praise and cheap flattery
So it did me a great harm
As the poem failed to earn bitter envy.

    I am not sure whether the poet spoke about his natural verse or life verse but oh yes people flatter, sometimes it is harmless other times it leads to undesirable consequences, - a lucid poem! 10/10. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
