Any one have any poems they'd like to share? If so please share!



I hear the crackling of fire

For me it inspires

The poem I have written

Only to be unforgiven

By the many cruel voices in life saying I'll never be excepted for who I am

This is poem for "Prayer for doughter"


Once more the storm is howling, and half hid

Under this cradle-hood and coverlid

My child sleeps on. There is no obstacle


But Gregory's wood and one bare hill

Whereby the haystack- and roof-levelling wind.

Bred on the Atlantic, can be stayed;


And for an hour I have walked and prayed

Because of the great gloom that is in my mind.

I have walked and prayed for this young child an hour


And heard the sea-wind scream upon the tower,

And-under the arches of the bridge, and scream

In the elms above the flooded stream;


Imagining in excited reverie

That the future years had come,

Dancing to a frenzied drum,


Out of the murderous innocence of the sea.

May she be granted beauty and yet not

Beauty to make a stranger's eye distraught,


Or hers before a looking-glass, for such,

Being made beautiful overmuch,

Consider beauty a sufficient end,


Lose natural kindness and maybe

The heart-revealing intimacy

That chooses right, and never find a friend.


Helen being chosen found life flat and dull

And later had much trouble from a fool,

While that great Queen, that rose out of the spray,


Being fatherless could have her way

Yet chose a bandy-legged smith for man.

It's certain that fine women eat


A crazy salad with their meat

Whereby the Horn of plenty is undone.

In courtesy I'd have her chiefly learned
