Topic of the Day: slavery

International Day for the Abolition of Slavery

A slave

To my lady love, I am a slave;
To my little kid, I am a slave;
To tobacco, I am a slave.
Being a slave is being in grave.

About poetry

Vincent Van Gogh

Poetry surrounds us everywhere, but putting it on paper is, alas, not so easy as looking at it.

Poems

Carmen Sylva

The Charwoman

If only 'twere not Christmas Eve,
Nor bright other places,
Nor loaded the boards I perceive,
Nor happy the faces,

And not so wretched at home,
And none of this whining
And begging for bread when I come
By little cheeks pining

Today for hunger again.
To deeply depress me!
If they, who forget now my pain,
Could see it distress me!

Too listlessly come I and go;
All dirty I never
Must faint in the twilight glow
But toil on forever.

Walking On Egg Shells? ? ?

Carefully i tiptoe heedful not to allow-
My Cat astrophe to step on or irritate
Your Dog mas!
As many disasters are borne of
Many Cat aclysms!
Originating by many a sudden cat apult!
I opine, as i am continually dog ged-
By reading the dog gerels of grand bards.

Nine Things

It's night
and a numbered beauty
lapses at the wind,
chortles with the
branches of a tree,

giggles,

plays shadow dance
with a dead kite,
cajoles affection
from falling leaves,
and knows four
other things.
One is the color
of your hair.
