(from Wiki) Stevenson had always wanted his 'Requiem' inscribed on his tomb: '' Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie. Glad did I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to be; Home is the sailor, home from sea, And the hunter home from the hill. '' - However, the piece is MISQUOTED in many places, including his tomb: Home is the sailor, home from THE sea, And the hunter home from the hill.
awesome person awesome poems
It is right to see such a gentle man look harsh, because he has trodden down and known so much of a harsh world in order to command that visage in life. A goodly poet
When I was 8, my grandparents gave me for Christmas, A Child's Garden of Verses, my first poetry book. I adored it and still have it on my bookshelf. I remember that when I read it, it seemed dreamlike and peaceful... I had a happy feeling. How odd, I think, looking back on it, that a child so young would like poetry? Later on in childhood I read Shel Silverstein's popular poetry books but they were much more, hit-you-over-the-head with silliness, while this book was more intelligent and wry. For example, The Whole Duty of Children, : A child should always say what's true, And speak when he is spoken to, And behave mannerly at the table, At least as far as he is able, which is accompanied by a drawing of a child asleep sitting before his half-eaten meal with his head on the table.
There are a lot of my poems including the elements of rhymes, bits... what's more, fairy tale elements of a child's heart. Welcome.
Comment about your poem Love Despair - What is despair? After lots of ups and downs – first you deny, then you realize, finally... you have to believe What wins? is … the one who departs first Who loses? is … the one who loves more and insists not to go What if …? Everything is just a game and tact?
