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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
