When I Was Sick


I looked outside my window sill
Everything was tall and clean.
When sick never did i take a pill
And there on that tree grew beans.

Everything touched my tongue
So badly tasted sour.
Every time the birds sung
I was done for.

Wanted to play
and get out of this cage please.
For amazing was the day
But here i was seized.

When i was sick
I could not play
And an icecream i wanted to lick.
For amazing was the day.

I felt twisted.
A never here
and my heart was never listed.
With a never there.

I felt dizzy.
The room circled in two
And a bit frizzy.
There was nothing i could do.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
