    Post some of your favorite poems.Feel free to include popular works,or your own original writing.:)



    Good Hours -Robert Frost

    I had for my winter evening walk—
    No one at all with whom to talk,
    But I had the cottages in a row
    Up to their shining eyes in snow.

    And I thought I had the folk within:
    I had the sound of a violin;
    I had a glimpse through curtain laces
    Of youthful forms and youthful faces.

    I had such company outward bound.
    I went till there were no cottages found.
    I turned and repented, but coming back
    I saw no window but that was black.

    Over the snow my creaking feet
    Disturbed the slumbering village street
    Like profanation, by your leave,
    At ten o'clock of a winter eve.



    The Tyger- William Blake

    Tyger, Tyger, burning bright,
    In the forests of the night:
    What immortal hand or eye,
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

    In what distant deeps or skies
    Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
    On what wings dare he aspire?
    What the hand dare sieze the fire?

    And what shoulder, & what art,
    Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
    And when thy heart began to beat,
    What dread hand? & what dread feet?

    What the hammer? what the chain?
    In what furnace was thy brain?
    What the anvil? what dread grasp,
    Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

    When the stars threw down their spears
    And water'd heaven with their tears:
    Did he smile his work to see?
    Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

    Tyger, Tyger, burning bright,
    In the forests of the night:
    What immortal hand or eye,
    Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?



    The Poison Tree- William Blake

    I was angry with my friend:
    I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
    I was angry with my foe:
    I told it not, my wrath did grow.

    And I waterd it in fears,
    Night & morning with my tears:
    And I sunned it with smiles,
    And with soft deceitful wiles.

    And it grew both day and night.
    Till it bore an apple bright.
    And my foe beheld it shine,
    And he knew that it was mine.

    And into my garden stole.
    When the night had veild the pole;
    In the morning glad I see
    My foe outstretchd beneath the tree.

    Batman TAS was such an awesome cartoon, that it taught me "The Tyger" when I was around 6.

    Here's my favorite poem:

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Whose d1ck was so long he could suck it
    And he said with a grin
    As he wiped off his chin
    If my ear were a cooch I would fcck it!

    That's my favorite. Well, that, and the Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Coleridge.

    This one always brings me peace of mind:

    Daffodils

    I WANDER'D lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the Milky Way,
    They stretch'd in never-ending line
    Along the margin of a bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company:
    I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.

    ~ William Wordsworth

    Success is counted sweetest
    By those who ne'er succeed.
    To comprehend a nectar
    Requires sorest need.

    Not one of all the purple Host
    Who took the Flag today
    Can tell the definition
    So clear of Victory

    As he defeated—dying—
    On whose forbidden ear
    The distant strains of triumph
    Break agonized and clear!

    919
    If I can stop one Heart from breaking
    I shall not live in vain
    If I can ease one Life the Aching
    Or cool one Pain

    Or help one fainting Robin
    Unto his Nest again,
    I shall not live in Vain.

    712
    Because I could not stop for Death—
    He kindly stopped for me—
    The Carriage held but just Ourselves—
    And Immortality.

    We slowly drove—He knew no haste
    And I had put away
    My labor and my leisure too,
    For His Civility—

    We passed the School, where Children strove
    At Recess—in the Ring—
    We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain—
    We passed the Setting Sun—

    Or rather—He passed Us—
    The Dews drew quivering and chill—
    For only Gossamer, my Gown—
    My Tippet—only Tulle—


    We paused before a House that seemed
    A Swelling of the Ground—
    The Roof was scarcely visible—
    The Cornice—in the Ground—

    Since then—‘tis Centuries—and yet
    Feels shorter than the Day
    I first surmised the Horses' Heads
    Were toward Eternity—

    -Emily Dickinson

    This speech is my recital, I think it's very vital
    To rock a rhyme, that's right on time
    It's Tricky is the title, here we go...

    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...it's Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
    It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
    It's Tricky...Tr-tr-tr-tricky (Tricky) Trrrrrrrrrrricky

    I met this little girlie, her hair was kinda curly
    Went to her house and bust her out, I had to leave real early
    These girls are really sleazy, all they just say is please me
    Or spend some time and rock a rhyme, I said "It's not that easy"

    In New York the people talk and try to make us rhyme
    They really (hawk) but we just (walk) because we have no time
    And in the city it's a pity cause we just can't hide
    Tinted windows don't mean nothin', they know who's inside

    When I wake up people take up mostly all of my time
    I'm not singin', phone keep ringin' cause I make up a rhyme
    I'm not braggin', people naggin' cause they think I'm a star
    Always tearin' what I'm wearin', I think they're goin' too far
    A girl named Carol follows Daryll every gig we play
    Then D dissed her and dismissed her, now she's jockin' Jay
    I ain't lyin', girls be cryin' cause I'm on TV
    They even bother my poor father cos he's down with me

    We are not thugs, we don't use drugs
    But you assume on your own
    They offer coke and lots of dope
    But we just leave it alone
    It's like that y'all (y'all), but we don't quit
    You keep on (rock!) shock! Cause this is it...

    Life is a joke and all things show it.
    I thought so once and now I know it.

    Can't remember who created this ditty.

    Yeah, you better run!

    you're such an a$$hole and
    you're such a jerk,
    my opinion of you
    couldn't get any worse,
    and you know I'd like to see you
    I hate everything about you
    I hate everything you do
    I hate the way you talk and
    the dumb things you say too, and
    I'd like to see you dead,
    cause you make me sick to my stomach
    and you make me want to puke,
    and it would be my dream come true
    if somethin really bad would happen to you
    You're such an idiot
    And you're such a creep
    And I really don't care
    what you think about me
    And you know, I'd like to see you
    I hate you from the start
    And I hate you to the end
    And I hate your mom and dad
    And I hate your stupid friends
    I'd like to see you dead,
    cause you make me sick to my stomach
    and you make me want to puke,
    And you know when you're finally gone
    I'm gonna dance on your grave and spit on it too
    And you know, I'd like to see you dead

    Kingfisher Road Alight

    Kingfisher Road,
    Just off Noel,
    Take it long enough,
    They've dressed it up with trees and flags and flowers,
    But it's hell,

    Mom and dad are still together,
    By the dock,
    The dog is free and happy,
    My uncle can still walk,

    A wistful nightmare,
    My aunt is laughing while she wipes my little cousin down with a cloth,
    But the house is still burning,
    Just have to knock,

    I light a bonfire,
    In the best lobe of my brain,
    Have you heard about it,
    Buddy,
    The one that stops the pain?

    The stairs to the basement are still steep as ever,
    Sweet smell of bleech,
    Filling up my mind,
    Ain't going nowhere,

    Old crucifix,
    Still on the wall,
    Old tattered, couloured rug,
    Still graying in the hall,

    The trees behind the sleep camp,
    The spot where we buried that old jar,
    The lake isn't even moving,
    It's all just a mental scar,

    Kingfisher Road is burning,

    I light a bonfire in the worst lobe of my brain,
    Have you heard about it?
    The one that stops the pain

    This is a real poem I wrote at work a few years ago. ***work-related content***

    Why touch the stainless ?
    And why touch the glass ?
    When you COULD touch the wood
    And you COULD touch the brass
    Jerk.
