    The much demanded poetry corner.

    Are you a poet, and do you know it?
    Apparently I am, but don't like to show it?

    To start off a poem by Derek Walcott, who won a nobel prize for his contributions to literature! Love after Love...

    Lord Byron Still one of my favorites from high school english.

    She walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that 's best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
    Thus mellow'd to that tender light
    Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
    One shade the more, one ray the less,
    Had half impair'd the nameless grace
    Which waves in every raven tress,
    Or softly lightens o'er her face;
    Where thoughts serenely sweet express
    How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

    And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
    So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
    The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
    But tell of days in goodness spent,
    A mind at peace with all below,
    A heart whose love is innocent!

    Ooh! I love poetry! :p
    I thought I'd start with a little love poem I wrote to my city... :innocent:

    Ode to the City
    Part One
    You are slush
    and mush and a mess
    a delightful dirty mess
    of emotion and confusion and insanity
    the moving confusing
    swirling
    blasting combusting
    whoosh
    of people

    Part Two
    These pink plaster pueblos
    of Kleenex boxes and
    sweaters with kittens and
    smiling children of indiscriminate origin
    and houses with painted shutters
    and long stretches of nothingness
    and crickets
    Make me long for you

    Another old one... :flower:

    The sun
    stains the wall
    reveals
    cobwebs windows
    shards of broken glass

    It is dark inside
    the lights
    reflect along
    the corridor
    follow
    me
    as I walk

    I love it when you say,
    spiraling blasting combusting, whoosh, of people
    That bit sticks in my mind most of all.

    The duck doth quack,
    it's eyes are black.
    Soon it will be on a rack
    and patrons will nibble it's back.
    Poor duck
    Quack, quack...

    :blink:

    My Love is True, It's You I'll Chew

    Cupcake, cupcake
    you are so sweet
    I really adore your delectable treat
    Your top is pink, your inside's brown
    I love those sprinkles
    they turn me 'round
    Oh how I love thee
    cupcake dear
    How sad my birthday
    comes but once a year

    :p
