1914 V: The Soldier
by Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,

Tall Nettles
by Edward Thomas

TALL nettles cover up, as they have done
These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough
Long worn out, and the roller made of stone:
Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.

This corner of the farmyard I like most:
As well as any bloom upon a flower
I like the dust on the nettles, never lost
Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.

The Boy Who Ate Flowers
by Bogdan Dragos

He ate flowers.

this mentally challenged boy
from the countryside
I used to watch him
in the fields
when I visited my grandparents
as a kid
He was like an exotic thing
a wild beast chasing

A Toccata Of Galuppi's
by Robert Browning


Oh Galuppi, Baldassaro, this is very sad to find!
I can hardly misconceive you; it would prove me deaf and blind;
But although I take your meaning, 'tis with such a heavy mind!


Here you come with all your music, and here's all the good it brings.
What, they lived once thus at Venice where the merchants were the kings,

by Wilfred Owen


Happy are men who yet before they are killed
Can let their veins run cold.
Whom no compassion fleers
Or makes their feet
Sore on the alleys cobbled with their brothers.
The front line withers,
But they are troops who fade, not flowers
For poets' tearful fooling:

Black Diamond
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

summoned black diamond
sun's at other side of night
with the dream roses

heart of joy twinkling
gone down in sea of colors
star of plum evening

still in its peach prime
and dust of the day settles

Flower And Thorns
by Mahtab Bangalee

Love is flower, love is thorns. (Someone said)

Flower- the queen beauty of nature
There love is fair of prayer
Thorns- the sufferings of nature
There love is a remedy seeker

Flower- smiling charm in the beloved hands
There love is hearty shore’s deserted sands
Thorns- tears of discord in the beloved mind

A Sonnet 11: About Nothing Changes Her Love For Me
by Ayatullah Nurjati

When I see her face there is a shade
When I hear her voice, I feel comfortable in my heart
When I see her smile I feel sunshine and never fade
When I see point of view of her life that inspire my heart

Nothing has changed in her like spring which displays the beauty of the scent of flowers
Nothing has changed her feelings and love for me
Nothing has changed about my feelings to her like leaves that always grow on each stem and they are water proofers
Nothing changes day after day, month after month, year after year her feelings for me

Nuances of Pink
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Water lily lake
in hot pink epoch of sun
Coral lilies bob
Fuchsia flight, dusk melodies
Salmon rose sends scents

Moonlight lake gleams, as
skies darken to amaranth
Pink daisy twilight
Gathering sweet raspberries

Ay Pensé Que Me Amabas
by Hébert Logerie

Ay, pensé que me amabas
Pero no lo hiciste en realidad
Sé a ciencia cierta que amas
Éxito, dinero, mis sueños y propiedad.

Sí, no me amabas
Por la moda reaccionaste
Cuando tú y yo necesitábamos el dinero todopoderoso
¡Oh! Te volviste malvado, chiflado e hinchado.
