To A Respected Poet


When you, much-loved poet, shall die,
sure as sunrise, I will come by,

to share with you some solitude,
to express deep gratitude,

you inspired me much to go on
with more poetical creation,

I will come, too, with confession
I gave you no competition,

to assure you in me there was
no aim that you I will surpass,

in poetry's world you stand tall,
loom to be in Parnassus' hall,

happy I will be in the plains
writing of life's glory and pains.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
