Le Vent.
by Jacques du Lumerie

You drank all the moonlight
And left us with just stars;

Now you are eating the sun.
Are you to leave us with nothing
With which to stay alive?

See, my children
Are already crying:
'Oh, the cold,

The Stranger
by Rudyard Kipling

The Stranger within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk--
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
But not the soul behind.

The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wanted to,

Exposure
by Wilfred Owen

I

1 Our brains ache, in the merciless iced east winds that knife us ...
2 Wearied we keep awake because the night is silent ...
3 Low drooping flares confuse our memory of the salient ...
4 Worried by silence, sentries whisper, curious, nervous,
5 But nothing happens.

6 Watching, we hear the mad gusts tugging on the wire.
7 Like twitching agonies of men among its brambles.

To A Shade
by William Butler Yeats

IF you have revisited the town, thin Shade,
Whether to look upon your monument
(I wonder if the builder has been paid)
Or happier-thoughted when the day is spent
To drink of that salt breath out of the sea
When grey gulls flit about instead of men,
And the gaunt houses put on majesty:
Let these content you and be gone again;
For they are at their old tricks yet.
A man

The Moon
by William Henry Davies

Thy beauty haunts me heart and soul,
Oh, thou fair Moon, so close and bright;
Thy beauty makes me like the child
That cries aloud to own thy light:
The little child that lifts each arm
To press thee to her bosom warm.

Though there are birds that sing this night
With thy white beams across their throats,
Let my deep silence speak for me

I Need A Family Not A Court (Poem) By Christen Kuikoua
by Christen Kuikoua

Never Compete
with Artificial intelligence
but instead focus
On developing Unique human Intelligence
Because If you continue
to teach today
as you taught yesterday
then you rob us students of tomorrow
for you can lead a horse to water
but you can't force it

Because Oprah Says So
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

But I’m an altar boy who helps my priest every Sunday...
“That’s because you’re a racist!”

I was taught by my parents to love everyone...
“That’s because you’re a racist!”

But I helped the blind man cross the busy street...
“That’s because you’re a racist!”

I woke up this morning...

What Love Truly Brings
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

The millennials are out there protesting
while wearing a Covid mask...
The president uses Twitter
to take them all to task...

The parents are threatening
to change the basement key...
The children are demanding
that the politicians set them free...

A Drunk With No Shame
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

She was a loving mom…
A good wife, too…
She cared for her family…
There was nothing she wouldn’t do…

She had three beautiful boys…
Her little ducks in a row…
They were always together…
They loved their mom so…

The Trees of Life
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

The trees of life…
They crave our attention…
We show our love…
Is there no redemption…

We love of children…
From the day they are born…
We nurture their love…
Protect them from the thorn…
