The Steps - Poem by Paul Valery
Your steps, children of my silence,Holily, slowly placed,Towards the bed of my vigilanceProceed dumb and frozen.Nobody pure, divine shade,That they are soft, your steps selected!Gods!… all the gifts which I guessCome to me on these naked feet!If, of your advanced lips,You prepare to alleviate it,An inhabitant of my thoughtsThe food of a kiss,Does not hasten this tender act,To be soft and not to be not?Because I lived to await you,And my heart was only your steps.
some of your poems are so lovely
do you have your own work
i would like to see it
Song Of The Open Road - Poem by Ogden Nash
I think that I shall never seeA billboard lovely as a treeIndeed, unless the billboards fallI'll never see a tree at all.
Reprise - Poem by Ogden Nash
Geniuses of countless nationsHave told their love for generationsTill all their memorable phrasesAre common as goldenrod or daisies.Their girls have glimmered like the moon,Or shimmered like a summer moon,Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,Now the sunset, now the dawn,Here the princess in the towerThere the sweet forbidden flower.Darling, when I look at youEvery aged phrase is new,And there are moments when it seemsI've married one of Shakespeare's dreams.
First child.... second child by Ogden Nash
FIRSTBe it a girl, or one of the boys,It is scarlet all over its avoirdupois,It is red, it is boiled; could the obstetricianHave possibly been a lobstertrician?His degrees and credentials were hunky-dory,But how's for an infantile inventory?Here's the prodigy, here's the miracle!Whether its head is oval or spherical,You rejoice to find it has only one,Having dreaded a two-headed daughter or son;Here's the phenomenon all complete,It's got two hands, it's got two feet,Only natural, but pleasing, becauseFor months you have dreamed of flippers or claws.Furthermore, it is fully equipped:Fingers and toes with nails are tipped;It's even got eyes, and a mouth clear cut;When the mouth comes open the eyes go shut,When the eyes go shut, the breath is loosedAnd the presence of lungs can be deduced.Let the rockets flash and the cannon thunder,This child is a marvel, a matchless wonder.A staggering child, a child astounding,Dazzling, diaperless, dumbfounding,Stupendous, miraculous, unsurpassed,A child to stagger and flabbergast,Bright as a button, sharp as a thorn,And the only perfect one ever born.SECONDArrived this evening at half-past nine.Everybody is doing fine.Is it a boy, or quite the reverse?You can call in the morning and ask the nurse.
in a place
but of sound
By a 17 year old girl named Chanie Gorkin (Brooklyn, NYC):
Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don't try to convince me that
There's something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don't last.
And it's not true that
It's all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be obtained
Only if one's surroundings are good
It's not true that good exists
I'm sure you can agree that
It's all beyond my control.
And you'll never in a million years hear me say that
Today was a good day
Now read from the bottom to top.
it is all about the universe
and the mistery of it
and a light

It is everywhere
is going on
it is not running
I stop for a while
and I take
It is a good auspice.
It is not what it seems,
it is not what it seems,
why do you look so scared?,
take your life as it is,
it 's the key for joy,
it's the key for joy,
I am on this wave's path,
you are so beautiful.
Don't lose yourself,
Don't lose yourself.
I see from far,
I see from the high
of my experience.
You are so right
as you are,
don't miss yourself
Don't miss yourself
I want to dedicate this tune to Swedish U2 fans.
Hope you enjoy it.

going down the street
are so incredibly smart,
I look so shy
and beautiful at your eyes,
I can see it when I look at you,
please stay so close
all the hours you can.
I love everything you say,
because I love
oh my dear fellow,
be the light of my day,
as long as you can.
Oh my dear mate,
oh my dear mate,
you and I are something
you might know.

It is about greatness in the landscape, stumble, are we allowed to imagine sadness in all that?
Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride-Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride.Ah, less- less brightThe stars of the nightThan the eyes of the radiant girl!That the vapor can makeWith the moon-tints of purple and pearl,Can vie with the modest Eulalie's most unregarded curl-Can compare with the bright-eyed Eulalie's most humble and carelesscurl.Now Doubt- now PainCome never again,For her soul gives me sigh for sigh,And all day longShines, bright and strong,Astarte within the sky,While ever to her dear Eulalie upturns her matron eye-While ever to her young Eulalie upturns her violet eye.
Edgar Allan Poe

'There are limits beyond which the idiocy should be controlled.'
Some day, if I should ever lose you,will you be able then to go to sleepwithout me softly whispering above youlike night air stirring in the linden tree?Without my waking here and watchingand saying words as tender as eyelidsthat come to rest weightlessly upon your breast,upon your sleeping limbs, upon your lips?Without my touching you and leaving youalone with what is yours, like a summer gardenthat is overflowing with massesof melissa and star-anise?Translated by Albert Ernest Flemming
