Recognize when you are wrong.

Shut up when you are right

Humble was glad to follow the Lord.

Grumble is an immoral source.

Humble was never seen with a frown.

Grumble is a grumbler who has never smiled.

Humble, don’t grumble, I pray

Grumble is your twin.

Do not grumble. Be humble today.

“Messy Room” by Shel Silverstein

His underwear hangs on the lamp.

The overstuffed chair holds his raincoat.

The chair is getting very mucky and damp.

His workbook is tucked in the window.

His sweater has been laid on the ground.

Below the TV is his scarf and one ski.

His pants were also carelessly hung at the door.

All of his books are in the closet.

His vest was left in the hall.

Ed, a lizard, is sleeping in his bed.

His soiled old socks were stuck to the wall.

This should make anyone ashamed.

Donald, Robert or Willie?

Huh? It’s yours, you say? Oh, dear,

It looked familiar to me!

We will have lots of time together

It was all I could do.

When I was five,

I was only alive.

Now I am Six

I am as smart as they come.

I believe I will be six for all eternity.

Robert Frost’s “The Rose Family”

A rose is a rose.

It was always a rose.

The theory is now confirmed

The apple is a rose.

The pear is also delicious.

I think the plum.

The dear knows only what the dear know

Next, a rose will bloom.

You are, naturally, a rose.

They were always a rose.

Maya Angelou’s “When You Come”

Unbidden, when you come to me

Be my Beckoning Me

To long-ago rooms,

There are many places where memories reside.

As a child, offer me an attic.

There are too few gatherings.

Baubles full of stolen kisses

Trinkets for borrowed love

There are many secret words in this book.


William Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 29”

In disgrace with fortune, men’s eyes and fortune

I alone can beg for my outcast state.

With my bootless cries, trouble deaf heaven

Take a look at me and curse my fate.

I wish you a more prosperous life.

Like him with his friends

This man’s art and this man’s scope are what I long for

What I am most content with least.

But in these thoughts, I almost find myself despising.

Haply, I think of thee, then my state.

(Like the lark at dawn arising

(From sullen Earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate

Sweet love, remember such wealth!

That is why I shun to change my state with the kings.

Emily Dickinson, “It’s all I have to bring today”

That’s all I have today.

This, and my heart beside it–

This, my heart, and all of the fields.

All the meadows are wide–

Count every word.

One could tell the whole story by adding up.

This, my heart, and all of the Bees

Which are found in the Clover.

Walt Whitman’s “A Glimpse”

An interstice glimpse captured

A crowd of drivers and workmen gathered in a bar room to watch the stove at night. I was unremarkably seated in a corner.

A youth who loves me and whom he loves, silently approaching me and sitting near me, so he can hold me by my hand.

It was a long time in the midst of all the noises of going and coming, of drinking, oath, and smutty jest.

We are content together, happy to be together, and we speak little, if any, of each other.

Langston Hughes’ “A Love Song For Lucinda”


Is it a plum?

Growing up under a purple tree.

It’s delicious!

Its spell is enchanting

You will never be forgotten.


Bright star

The far Southern sky is glistening.

Look too hard

Its burning flame

Your eyes will always be hurt.


What is a high mountain?

Stark under a windy sky.

If you are interested in

Never lose your breath

Don’t climb too high.

Carl Sandberg’s “I Love You”

I love you for who you are, but I also love you for what your future holds.

I love you for your dreams and realities, but not for your reality. I pray that your dreams may come true, and not for your mediocre satisfactions.

One whose petals are about falling is a happy flower. A bud that is bursting with the desire to grow larger and more beautiful flowers is the most beautiful. poems will not always be the same as you are now. You are moving forward towards something wonderful. You are on the right track and I love you.

“Sonnet XLIII” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How can I love you? Let me count the ways.

I love you to the fullest.

When I feel out of sight, my soul can reach.

For the ends and ideal grace.

You are my greatest love.

The sun and candle-light are the best options for quiet.

As men strive for justice, I love you freely.

You are my only love, and I am yours without exception.

With passion, I love you.

In my old sorrows and in my childhood faith.

You are my love, and I feel like I’m losing it.

With my saints lost. I love you with my breath.

Smiles, tears, and all of my life. And, if God wills,

I will only love you more after death.

Rumi: “Defeated By Love”

The sky was lit

By the beauty of the moon

So powerful

I fell to the floor

Your love

It has made me certain

I’m ready to give up.

This is the worldly life

And surrender

To the magnificence

Your Being

E.E. Cummings

This place is for you.

(with the brightness of peace)

All places

Yes, there is a world.

In this world of

yes live

(skilfully curled)

All worlds

Pablo Neruda, “Your Feet,”

If I can’t look at your face

I look at you feet.

Your feet made of arched bone

your hard little feet.

They are there to support you.

That’s your sweet weight

They are risen upon.

Your breasts and your waist.

The doubled purple

Your nipples

The sockets of your eyes

They have all flown away.

your wide fruit mouth,

Your red tresses

My little tower.

I still love your feet

They walked because they were able to.

Upon the earth and upon

The wind and the water

Until they found me.

W.B Yeats, “Never Give All The Heart”

For love, don’t give up on your heart.

It will hardly be worth considering.

Passionate women, if it seems

They are certain, but they don’t dream of it.

It fades from kiss to kiss.

All that is beautiful

poems was a short, sweet, and kind of magical delight.

Never give up on your heart.

They, for all their smooth lips can say,

They have given their hearts to the play.

Who could do it better?

If you are deaf, dumb, and blind in love

He who made it knows the price.

He gave his whole heart and was able to lose nothing.

Margaret Atwood’s “You Fit into Me”

You fit in me

Like a hook to an eye

a fish hook

an open eye

I stand with those who support fire.

poems However, if it had been to die twice,

I believe I am well-versed in hate

That’s destruction ice, to be exact

It is also fantastic

That would be enough.

Anais Nin’s “Risk”

The day finally came.

When the risk is

To remain tight

in a bud

It was even more painful

More than the risk

It took

To blossom.

Maya Angelou,poems “Awakening in New York”

Curtains that force their will

Against the wind

It drags itself awake

Subway straps

I, an alarm, wake up as a

Rumors of war

lie stretching into dawn

Unasked and ignored

Natasha Tretheway, “Housekeeping”,

We grieve the broken, chair legs

They were flung from their chairs and chipped plates.

The clothes that are worn out. We do the magic

Use glue to drive the nails and mend the holes.

We melt small pieces to save what we can

Make soap by gathering pecans and keeping your neck bones.

For soup. Beat rugs against your house

We watch dust spread like stars.

The yard is open to all. We draw in the afternoon.

The blinds are used to cool the rooms.

I make sure to mark the pages in a mail-order catalogue.

Pay attention to cars passing by. We watch all day.

For the mail, some news from distant places

Everybody has a chance to hear the sermon on Sundays.

to confess their sins. Miss Edna makes you go

to church. She wears a bright hat

I wear my suit. Babies wear lace.

My age group of girls, some pretty, and some not so

pretty. Old men and women nod.

Miss Edna throws her hand every once in a while

In the air. Say Yes Lord, Preach!

I keep a pen in my back pocket.

Bend down as if I had dropped something.

The preacher is accompanied by a chorus.

Get ready to sing by clapping, humming, and clapping.

I have the word HOPE written on my hand.

Karina Borowicz, “September Tomatoes”,

The whiskey smell of rot has settled

In the garden, a burst in fruit flies raises

When I touch the tomato plants that are dying.

Yet, tiny yellow blossoms still have their claws.

As I lift the vines by their roots, I flail in the air.

Toss them in the compost

It’s cruel. It feels cruel.

To let summer go so easily. To destroy

What I have carefully nurtured over the past months.

These pale flowers may still be able to bear fruit.

My great-grandmother sang for the village girls

They pulled the flax. Songs so old

So tied to the season, that the very sound

It seemed to change the weather.

Maggie Smith, “Good Bones”,

Although life is short, I try to keep that from my children.

Life is short. I have cut mine.

You can find a million delicious and ill-advised ways to do it.

There are a thousand ways to be deliciously stupid.

I will keep my children from this. The world is at most

50 percent of the population is considered to be terrible.

Estimate, but I keep it from my children.

Every bird is worth a stone.

A broken and bagged child is a child that has been loved.

You are sunk into a lake. The world is too short.

It is at least half as terrible for all kinds

Stranger, there’s one who could break you.

However, I try to keep it from my children. I’m trying.

To sell them the world. Any decent realtor,

Walking you through a real shithole of chirps.

About good bones: This area could be beautiful.

right? This place could be beautiful.

Wendell Berry’s “The Peace Of Wild Things”,

If I feel despair for the world, it is me

I wake up in the morning with the least amount of sound

In fear for my life and the lives of my children,

I lay down on the spot where the wood drapes.

He lies in his beauty on water and the great heron eats.

I enter the peace and tranquility of wild animals

Who do not overtax their lives with forethought?

The grief. I am at peace with still water.

And I feel the day-blind stars above me

Waiting with their light. It will take some time.

I am free because I trust in the grace of God.
