The British
by Benjamin Zephaniah

Take some Picts, Celts and Silures
And let them settle,
Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.

Remove the Romans after approximately 400 years
Add lots of Norman French to some
Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Vikings, then stir vigorously.

Mix some hot Chileans, cool Jamaicans, Dominicans,
Trinidadians and Bajans with some Ethiopians, Chinese,

Duino Elegies: The First Elegy
by Rainer Maria Rilke

Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angels'
hierarchies? and even if one of them suddenly
pressed me against his heart, I would perish
in the embrace of his stronger existence.
For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are barely able to endure and are awed
because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
Each single angel is terrifying.
And so I force myself, swallow and hold back
the surging call of my dark sobbing.

The City Planners
by Margaret Atwood

Cruising these residential Sunday
streets in dry August sunlight:
what offends us is
the sanities:
the houses in pedantic rows, the planted
sanitary trees, assert
levelness of surface like a rebuke
to the dent in our car door.
No shouting here, or
shatter of glass; nothing more abrupt

To The Daisy
by William Wordsworth

IN youth from rock to rock I went
From hill to hill in discontent
Of pleasure high and turbulent,
Most pleased when most uneasy;
But now my own delights I make,---
Thirst at every rill can slake,
And gladly Nature's love partake,
Of Thee, sweet Daisy!

Thee Winter in the garland wears

The Old School List
by James Kenneth Stephen

In a wild moraine of forgotten books,
On the glacier of years gone by,
As I plied my rake for order's sake,
There was one that caught my eye:
And I sat by the shelf till I lost myself.
And roamed in the crowded mist,
And heard lost voices and saw lost looks,
As I pored on an Old School List.

What a jumble of names! there were some that I knew,

The Year 6555
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

We're now in the year 6555, and I am feeling happy and so alive,
Above, sunshine pours like honey, as along the oceanside I drive.

Wind whips my hair around, beneath skies a deep sparkling blue,
Like the confusion all around, when colorful swarms pass through.

Amidst the glorious scenery, sea planes touch down and take off,
Like those beautiful scenes created, when sun and moon faceoff!

Scarlet, plum and saffron blooms, dance up and down this coast,

Revelry
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

The year had ended and we are a year older.
Based on the past, we've grown bolder.

Heart's new joys reflect the old ones,
Amidst cheers and firing of guns!

Time and Memory
by Sharmarke Nur

We are trapped in the past, oblivious to the fact, today is eternity.

The light of the past can only be used to illuminate the futures darkness

Today’s eternity provides the opportunity of perpetual growth

And to utilize the past’s light to travel through the darkness of the future

See And Hear
by Yoko Fushigina

The grief is force to get us stronger.
Mistake is means by which we rise.
The pain you take endures no longer
Than hatred, bullying and despise.
Those things cannot be vindicated.
Wrongdoing's wrong no matter what.
But some of cruel thoughts are valid,
They're meant to be misunderstood.

To overcome the ones who fret you

Brother
by Tash Jane

Cowardly brother, I think I've found the answer
But while you've been holding the question,
You think you're an actor

Does your heart still yearn?
To know what went wrong
Fucked up kids
My heart's just beating along

I've looked through the dirty glass,
