Reproach To Litterary Preachers (teachers, lecturers and all succumbed to that category)


Darkness refers to evil
Night refers to death
Somber refers to fear
Shadow refers to wrath!

Night is never refered to as calm
Or the coming of the spiritual muse
All of those interpretations
Our Preachers will refuse!

One does not talk about stars,
Relaxing, breathing nature's art
But all is doomed in the night
Scary, Dreary, Flight and Fright!

Darkness is never refered to as peace,
Or time that though will rise-
This is wrong those ones will Preach
Rejecting this answers with disguise-

Somber and shadow refer to fear and wrath
Few* who will interpret thus:
Ashadow is a friend with whom you can play
But if you've chosen this to say
Beware! Beware! Away! Away!

Preachers deny Nature's perfect art
Natural Beauty, whatever might be
Is turned to Evil, and mostly** thus they see
************************************************< br>*In the original work it was [No one]
**In the Original work it was [Only],
but taking into consideration that some might have my point of few I changed the tone.
Note: If you relate to this poem you might want to take a look at 'Meaning Deletion' and 'Our Poetry Ruined'

    Thank you! ! I will save this for my grandson it is what I am teaching him, darkness is beauty and shadows are those friends when no one can come out. Where you there on our walk the other day? I love this piece. (Report) Reply

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
