Gone Fishin'
by Delmar Pepper

I've finished life's chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I've been invited to the fishin' hole.

Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don't worry, or feel sad for me,
I'm fishin' with the Master of the sea.

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,

The sun descending in the west,
The evening star does shine;
The birds are silent in their nest,
And I must seek for mine.
The moon, like a flower,
In heaven's high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.

Farewell, green fields and happy groves,

Eloisa To Abelard
by Alexander Pope

In these deep solitudes and awful cells,
Where heav'nly-pensive contemplation dwells,
And ever-musing melancholy reigns;
What means this tumult in a vestal's veins?
Why rove my thoughts beyond this last retreat?
Why feels my heart its long-forgotten heat?
Yet, yet I love!--From Abelard it came,
And Eloisa yet must kiss the name.

Dear fatal name! rest ever unreveal'd,

Saturday At The Canal
by Gary Soto

I was hoping to be happy by seventeen.
School was a sharp check mark in the roll book,
An obnoxious tuba playing at noon because our team
Was going to win at night. The teachers were
Too close to dying to understand. The hallways
Stank of poor grades and unwashed hair. Thus,
A friend and I sat watching the water on Saturday,
Neither of us talking much, just warming ourselves
By hurling large rocks at the dusty ground
And feeling awful because San Francisco was a postcard

My Honeysuckle
by Amanda Cossette

You smiled at me and grabbed my hand as we jumped into another dimension, your sneakers leading first down the black hole.
To be born again on the other side, and I think this must be what heaven feels like. In this life I want to make a strobe light of memories with you and whenever you’re gone, I’ll flash them in my mind, and they’ll be as new as the day they were. You shake me like an earthquake, your love rains down on me and quenches my Sahara heart. Strike lightning thru my soul and for once in my life I know what it’s like to feel alive,
Baby you’re the shore I’m the wave I’m always coming back home to you.

Today, I sat out in the sun
On the tea house patio,
Sipping an iced blueberry tea,
Basking in the sun's glow.

I sat and read some enthralling books,
In the wind both warm and fair
(Earlier I found a cozy book store
So I went and bought them there.)

Playing in the rain
by Author Reinvented

Today I went out and I played in the rain,
It was fun, it was wet, and not at all sane.
I laughed and I spun in the rain, and I danced,
I'd do it again, given the chance.

The rain was cool,
And made my clothes sticky,
But the weather was warm,
And not at all icky.

Are you happy now?
by Author Reinvented

Spending all your life looking to the future,
Letting all the moments pass by,
Never notice all the times trampled underfoot,
Eyes are always focused on the sky.

Spending all your life looking to the future,
Head always up in the clouds,
Always waiting for it to all get better,
But tell me, are you happy now?

by Gayatri Puri

When you look at me
My heart jumps a beat,
And I wonder
With deep impassioned thunders
Overflowing my mind
Making me bind
Is it real or I'm blind?
