Visions And Interpretations
by Li-Young Lee

Because this graveyard is a hill,
I must climb up to see my dead,
stopping once midway to rest
beside this tree.

It was here, between the anticipation
of exhaustion, and exhaustion,
between vale and peak,
my father came down to me

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.

The Duel
by Eugene Field

The gingham dog and the calico cat
Side by side on the table sat;
'T was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!)
Nor one nor t' other had slept a wink!
The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate
Appeared to know as sure as fate
There was going to be a terrible spat.
(I wasn't there; I simply state
What was told to me by the Chinese plate!)

The Weaver
by Anonymous Works

My life is but a weaving, between my God and me,
I do not choose the colors, He worketh steadily.
Ofttimes he weaveth sorrow, and I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper, and I the underside.
Not till the loom is silent, and the shuttles cease to fly,
Will God unroll the canvas, and explain the reasons why
The dark threads are as needful in the skillful weaver's hand
As threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.

He knows, He loves, He cares,

Learning Positive Vibes
by Somali Mukherjee

The clock strikes four;

I’m never like before;

I’ve learnt to take life’s drink

Up to the lees from the brink;

Multiple layers of joy

The Maze of Truth
by Lamar Yousif

Hello, I'm aiming to get better at writing poetry. So, I decided the best course of action was to write whatever came to mind to the best of my ability and then get personalized guidance rather than the generic and repetitive "helpful tips" I find on websites. Be as mean and brutal as you see fit, as long as it's honest and helpful. If you can, give me tips on what to name this thing, I think "The Maze of Truth" is a bit bland. Anyway, here it is:

The Maze of Truth

We all jump often, and leaves glide down, but birds are the ones with flight

Humans try so hard to dream away,

As from reality, we all try to flee.

Truth Wins, But
by Pijush Biswas

Truth wins! Ever embarked in honest goal!
Even truth doth ignite petals of mind.
We are unwise, for we know not all a kind,
Prettier than Gemini, half-hidden from aireal coal.
Thus, we are not slave of tongue; thus, Almighty
Had granted not a foul just to show
A leaf-fringe'd fence, or thence not to avow
Against being a slave of duty, and sing a ditty-
Far, as if, we have crost, ancientness is past.
We have all, but in empty gruesomeness

Truth
by Pijush Biswas

If anybody loves you, let him know
All but your living style;
The recoiling miseries will disperse -
Thoughtful life will increase it's area.

Love that hides n'er can give
But teach us how to be loved 'gain
'Cause everything made in difference.
All those last in love,
Are but some accepting and giving;

Crucifixion
by Jeff Bresee

They say that the truth is a hard thing to take,
but maybe it’s time that we see
that we as a people are nothing but fake,
ensuring that’s how it will be.

We stand up demanding there’s tolerance,
doing so with our fists in the air.
It’s truly the oddest dance ever been danced,
hypocrisy beyond compare.
