From 'Ulysses'
by James Joyce

There's a ponderous pundit MacHugh
Who wears goggles of ebony hue.
As he mostly sees double
To wear them why trouble?
I can't see the Joe Miller. Can you?

Myself
by Gayatri Puri

I lived by myself
So, I healed up myself
Started understanding myself
Rather than doubting myself
I stood up for myself,
I fought with myself
Until I got dependent on myself.
Yes, it sounds selfish,
But trust me
Sometimes, it's okay

What is Silence?
by Julia Shaw

Silence is snow falling outside your door
Turning the world into seamless white
Covering up all things ugly and impure
Quietly caressing the earth through the night

Silence is a mime telling stories without words
Using only features on his face recorded
He's understood perfectly though his voice isn't heard
By all that see him he's greatly adored

Fun Days With Dick and Jane
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

With a resourceful and older brother,
My early childhood was so much fun,
Such as being drawn in his red wagon,
And sledding in the late winter sun!

When I was just learning how to read,
I had to choose the only book I could,
And sitting in the sunset, I prettied,
As everything awash in radiance should!

we're all just a book in a library 
by Gwen Maryland

Everyone's life is a book
Where people read and take a look
Don't just look at the cover
Please look what's under

Not everything is what it seems
Even a book filled with memories 
Every book is precious and kept with care
In the library with a chair

Meditations on Covid 19
by Rudra Kinshuk

Meditations on Covid 19
1.
Crawling on the floor to wipe it
with kerosene and a stripe of cloth

The front door rattled,
a cold wave down the spinal tube

While crawling memories of childhood horses
thronged desperately, how far displaced from roots
