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.

I Love My Old House
by Harold James Douglas

I go singing down my country road,
I walk eagerly, I have no time for dreaming.
I love that house by the country road,
and I am headed home
with glad heart teeming.
I know that God has blessed
that old weather beaten house,
and I am filled with joy.
I carry a beautiful little cedar tree
across my back that will bring

The weight of the world
is love.
Under the burden
of solitude,
under the burden
of dissatisfaction

the weight,
the weight we carry
is love.

On Raglan Road
by Patrick Kavanagh

On Raglan Road on an autumn day I met her first and knew
That her dark hair would weave a snare that I might one day rue;
I saw the danger, yet I walked along the enchanted way,
And I said, let grief be a fallen leaf at the dawning of the day.

On Grafton Street in November we tripped lightly along the ledge
Of the deep ravine where can be seen the worth of passion's pledge,
The Queen of Hearts still making tarts and I not making hay -
O I loved too much and by such and such is happiness thrown away.

by Ren Adam Bres

A world apart yet our love remains,

To be happy again sans the shame.

Amidst the sunken, sullen silence of our place in the stars ā€“

I can only dream and hope for a world where you are not far.

Push and pull ā€“ we ebb and we flow, we laugh and we lose, we love and we hate.

Start a Quest to Discover the Purpose of Life
by airatmaninravi AiR

Who are you and Why are you Here?
Why did you come to Earth, my Dear?
Begin your Quest, do not Fear!

After 40 years, I started my Quest
I had the Guts to put all Beliefs to Test
The Reward was Worth it, it was the Best!

I am not ā€˜Iā€™, I Realized the Truth
I Searched and went to the Bottom of the Root

At the Rainbow
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

at the glossed rainbow
sky and grass held varied hues
bright days were foreseen

vast mood umbrella
nature's smile turned upside down
in green ecstasy

from the stained rainbow
I saw teal world was changing

A Christmas with loved ones
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

Lord show us the way
That we can best celebrate your day,
Should it be fun
For all of us to feel as one?
Or should we be sad
Knowing that we may at times have been a little bad?
May we please drink,
So that into depression we do not now sink,
Aware of course
That too much imbibed turns our chatter into morse.

A Shine of No Choice
by Hudhaifah siyad

May yours not be like a story of mine,
Of unkind fetishes on skeletons of time,
Pure on passion regardless the times fallen,
Deep into unending pits of sad tears sunken.

May the path of yours be free from stories gone,
Ones through speakers of motivations cry into souls,
About their successes after missteps from paths dusted,
Not more than their days of speech therapy is heard loud.

The Fading Blues
by Hudhaifah siyad

The fun of say blues,
Lights lit in pathways and walls,
That which makes pain go away,
Somewhere dreamt,
Ask me about it.

Through days of submission,
To souls darkened, naturally put,
Dulled and deemed dirty,
Somehow put,
