On Death
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The pale, the cold, and the moony smile
Which the meteor beam of a starless night
Sheds on a lonely and sea-girt isle,
Ere the dawning of morn's undoubted light,
Is the flame of life so fickle and wan
That flits round our steps till their strength is gone.

O man! hold thee on in courage of soul
Through the stormy shades of thy wordly way,
And the billows of clouds that around thee roll

Reaching For The Stars
by Jodi Davis

I am looking past the moon.
I am reaching for the stars.
The journey is worth the effort,
The distance is not that far.
I go as far as my body takes me,
My imagination lifts me the rest of the way.
The stars are constant, faithful friends,
Guiding and showing the way.
I've heard it said,
"Stars are the forgot-me-nots of angels",

The Fallen Elm
by John Clare

Old elm that murmured in our chimney top
The sweetest anthem autumn ever made
And into mellow whispering calms would drop
When showers fell on thy many coloured shade
And when dark tempests mimic thunder made -
While darkness came as it would strangle light
With the black tempest of a winter night
That rocked thee like a cradle in thy root -
How did I love to hear the winds upbraid
Thy strength without - while all within was mute.

Out Of The Cradle Endlessly Rocking
by Walt Whitman

Out of the cradle endlessly rocking,
Out of the mocking-bird's throat, the musical shuttle,
Out of the Ninth-month midnight,
Over the sterile sands and the fields beyond, where the child
leaving his bed wander'd alone, bareheaded, barefoot,
Down from the shower'd halo,
Up from the mystic play of shadows twining and twisting as
if they were alive,
Out from the patches of briers and blackberries,
From the memories of the bird that chanted to me,

Greek Love-Talk
by Rainer Maria Rilke

What I have already learned as a lover,
I see you, beloved, learning angrily;
then for you it distantly departed,
now your destiny stands in all the stars.

Over your breasts we will together contend:
since as glowingly shining they've ripened,
so also your hands desire to touch them
and their own pleasure superintend.

Skoči đevojka
by Nastasimir Franović

Stevanu se obećala Ruža mlada.
Obećala ne porekla,
da učini što je rekla.
Sužnju njenom ostala je nada.

Vukca oca nešće riječ pogaziti.
Nešce Ruža ni da čuje sto joj Rade i maćeha snuje.
Ne ustuknu mlada od te podle guje,
što snovaše kako će je upaziti.

Living Wheel

The Wheel of Destiny keeps on rotating
Every living thing withers with passing time
Time is eternal, precise and ever moving
Be happy, every moment is precious, sublime.

Shore of Destiny
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

blue-green reflections
in the place where pearl waves foam
rushing faltering

land mesmerizes
snowy billows walk the miles
then swoon in gold sun

mauve future's calling
all the sunlit pleasant hours

by Pierpaolo Gobbi

Oleanders, heavy with flowers
branching out in the cold mist
to witness an ungodly scene.

All around us the air stood still
not a blow on the mount
as if Zephyrus himself was waiting.

Tragedy in my arms
while I teach my murderer

Just wait!
by Muskan Sharma

Just wait!
Just wait!
Wait for the right moment,
Life is struggle
Never ending struggle,
As long as there is life,
Till then there is struggle.
You too will definitely get,
which will be yours.
Just wait,
