I had a little Sorrow,
Born of a little Sin,
I found a room all damp with gloom
And shut us all within;
And, "Little Sorrow, weep," said I,
"And, Little Sin, pray God to die,
And I upon the floor will lie
And think how bad I've been!"

Alas for pious planning—
It mattered not a whit!
As far as gloom went in that room,
The lamp might have been lit!
My little Sorrow would not weep,
My little Sin would go to sleep—
To save my soul I could not keep
My graceless mind on it!

So I got up in anger,
And took a book I had,
And put a ribbon on my hair
To please a passing lad,
And, "One thing there's no getting by—
I've been a wicked girl," said I:
"But if I can't be sorry, why,
I might as well be glad!"
Edna St. Vincent Millay

the big wind blowing ,snow melting on the mountain top.the rain comes to give new life to the trees and plants .The sun is shinning way up high . while the weak gets strong and the strong stay strong . new life is being made ,this is the meaning of spring.

You danced beneath the flames whilst glowing
Shattering the stars the fiend is knowing
of twilight spheres amongst the sea of the flowing
This flowering dust about the signs of eternal growing
And of the one who's fortune's bestowing
That knowledge needs no reason for tiptoeing
And sharing the wealth is a showing
To return the dust for the continuous sowing

J.F Halls

HEAR the sledges with the bells --
Silver bells !
What a world of merriment their melody foretells !
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle,
In the icy air of night !
While the stars that oversprinkle
All the heavens, seem to twinkle
With a crystalline delight ;
Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme,
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells --
From the jingling and the tinkling of the bells. Poe

A Word To Husbands
By Ogden Nash

To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.

@delamitri I remember notebook paper. When I was young, I wrote poetry, and songs all of the time...amd I mean ALL of the time! LOL! I would write all day, and as soon as I was finished with one, I would throw it away. I was never happy. I'm sure you've been through that. I decided it either wasn't good enough, or someone else had done it , and done it better. Or that maybe I was plagiarizing. I sent in two short stories to someone...I think Alfred Hitchcock magazine was one. And a SYFY mag was the other. They were both rejected. I got older, I had bills to pay, and that dream ended. I still like to write, though. The problem is that I bet I'm just like you. I'm my toughest critic. I like what you've done. Poetry is almost impossible. Have you tried any short stories?

@bondojoe This particular one was rejected. I haven't submitted many others, as this is a hobby. In the past, writing would help me deal with things I didn't want to talk about at the time. Was very good therapy. I used to run short stories through my head, but same as with you, life happened, so I never recorded any. If you ever feel up to sharing anything you've written, I'd love to see it. ☺

@RAVENOUSbird I know what you mean. This was an older one that used to carry weight for me, but now it's distant and fun. I would be a lot more reluctant to share current feely stuff I think.

@bondojoe yeah, me too;and in high school,Sacramento Valley,we had an English teacher who kept students' poems ect.I think I was bad,I didn't get any good till i was an adult.I never tried to submit.By then,my poems got "symbolical," a roommate asked me what one meant.I heard, a poetry place online wants long,story-telling poems--and they'd pay for it, Forgot who. smiley



i can't believe kids are not taught to WRITE CURSIVE, they become teens, and CAN'T SIGN THEIR NAMES!!IS THAT"common core"?Your schools so bad, yer kid can'rt sign his name?Our schools, even early in Oregon, were so bad,my dad had to teach me how to read,and do multiplication.(his whole family were teachers.)

The school in Oregon said I was retarded.When we moved to Sacramento,CA, we got tested, and I have a 140 IQ.their teachers were a lot better too, in the 60's.Oregon I hear,is even worse now.So parents started "charter schools,here "to avoid the state
& the fed.rules.Charter schools are independent.I think Charter schools can avoid a lotta crap.(I should look that up.)Yes, the school and the teacher make a huge difference.Sacramento then had money,they hired good teachers.sigh- smiley

-maybe i should get someone to design a program, to teach em,kids, cursive, you could probably sell it.they sure need it.Be a big hit with poor parents---make it fun. smiley smiley smiley smiley

@clarachan1355 I hated math, and therefore wasn't a good student. In my senior year I had a math teacher that would make me write as punishment, which was fine with me. I wrote everyday. I don't know what she did with them, either. I wonder if either of our teachers took all of our stuf, and had it published somewhere? I see a lot of stuff that looks like I might have written it! Bad stuff...or course...lol!

@clarachan1355 I'd like to have it all back. I wrote it in a fever, and can't remember any of it. It's been too many years.

@clarachan1355 I had a good primary school. In Northern Illinois, you go to school 8 years in what they calle "Grade school". Then you get 4 years of "High School" I learned everything that I knew in the 8 years of grade school. High school was just a rehash of what i'd already been taught. I rarely showed up. After graduation. at different times in my life I took some college courses. Sociology, Psychiatry, creative writing.... etc. I didn't have a goal, I just wanted to learn. I still do. That's an impressive IQ you have. Do you ever feel alone? Like you're talking to a wall?

bondojoe, Sorry I didn't write more before.Thanks about the IQ)Sorry about the typing,the erogonomic keyboard I will never get used to.)Yes,I often feel alone.It's part that people like us,(and I think you are very intelligent too)often don't fit in society . I am very lucky to know my sister,who is still in California,we talk a lot,and she's whip-smart.She says the same thing;she's relived to have me to talk to.We were'nt always getting along so well,we had to work at becoming friends as adults,cause our parents really split us up.I feel very lucky to have this smart,nice,good hearted sister to talk to.We were both tested as having the same IQ.But the lady,roommate,she had all her life,had a 200 I.Q.and worked for big law firms,in computers.So they were lucky to have each other,too, to talk to.They were both creative,and made a lot of jewelry,and belong to this big San Francisco jewelry hobby club. So,yes,in Eugene Oregon,now I get very alone.

What really also worked for me,was I found very intelligent nice people online once in awhile.One of my best friends I met online,cause we have a lot of the same family,ect.situations--she lives in Michigan.She is very smart person,did lots of medical research her doctors could not do.She's also a very good artist.

WE also talk on the phone.I found out,the Net is a great way to meet very nice smart people we would not meet otherwise in our community.(Ours is extreme screaming Liberal Democrat community,and hard to find anyone here who is more conservative.)

Your thirst for knowledge is a good thing,wanting to learn for the knowledge itself.I feel the same way.Learning itself is a great thing.You might really find some nice friends online,who have a lot of the same things in common,you can't find in your community.I found it really helps.You really feel a lot less lonely.Do be careful whom you find online,of course,but there are some really nice people online you can share things with. smiley There are some nice people here,I notice.In the past,before the Net,people,poets,ect.would do long distance letter-writing to each other to communicate.Similar to what the Net is doing now. smiley So I hope you feel less alone talking to all of us here. smiley

I feel less alone now than I did when I was young, because i've mellowed, and also because I've forgotten a lot of what I learned! LOL! Also, as you said, I have met SOME people that understand what thinking is, as opposed to memorization. Most people confuse the two. I think this is the best definition of intelligence that I have ever heard..." It's either the ability to concieve of new Ideas, new concepts, or it's the ability to combine two seperate ideas, and create a completely new one."

My One-Eyed Love
© Andrew Jefferson

I've fallen in love- I don't know why
I've fallen in love with a girl with one eye.

I knew from the start. It was plain to see
That this wonderful girl had an eye out for me

She's charming and witty and jolly and jocular
Not what you'd expect from a girl who's monocular.

Of eyes - at the moment - she hasn't full quota
But that doesn't change things for me one iota.

It must be quite difficult if you're bereft.
If your left eye is gone and your right eye is left.

But she's made up her mind. She's made her decision.
She can see it quite clearly in 10/20 vision.

She'll not leave me waiting, not left in the lurch
If she looks slightly sideways she'll see me in church.

I'll marry my true love who's gentle and kind.
And thus prove to everyone that loves not quite blind.
