2: Being in Love-Limerick | There once was a girl deep in love She flew very high like a dove One Day she sat down And Felt like a Clown To see the chair in the air above
4: The natural BEAUTY of A Broken Heart | As the tears fall from my eyes I won’t ever forget you Another hope for us dies You can’t handle my own cries I can’t take the things you do As the tears fall from my eyes Saying nothing but goodbyes She has the better review Another hope for us dies | As the tears fall from my eyes I won’t ever forget you Another hope for us dies You can’t handle my own cries I can’t take the things you do As the tears fall from my eyes Saying nothing but goodbyes She has the better review Another hope for us dies
5: The color left from the skies To a ghastly gray, once blue As the tears fall from my eyes You hide behind this disguise Her smile gives off a clue Another hope for us dies I am tired of all these lies You saw a girl and I flew As the tears fall from my eyes Another hope for us dies
6: HIGH SCHOOL | Every day like another inside of this place I feel like an iPod on replay each day Smiles and sleep and time to pay All the while its the same on my face Trying to give up and go my own pace After these four years we go our own way Its hard to find the right words to say One rat after another in this rat race I realize the pain in separation from you You promise that we'll always be together I hold you accountable for that forever And now I know just what to do Disconnected is not the end of all things If I get sad I just think of a new spring
7: Flowers | Slowly and gently The petals bend to the earth With stunning beauty
8: EXAMPLES OF POEMS
10: sonnet | Sonnet 1 Written by William Shakespeare
11: From fairest creatures we desire increase, That thereby beauty's rose might never die, But as the riper should by time decease, His tender heir might bear his memory: But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes, Feed'st thy light's flame with self-substantial fuel, Making a famine where abundance lies, Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel. Thou that art now the world's fresh ornament And only herald to the gaudy spring, Within thine own bud buriest thy content And, tender churl, makest waste in niggarding. Pity the world, or else this glutton be, To eat the world's due, by the grave and thee.
12: haiku | written by | Randy Klear
13: soft lights move in snow white beams brighten the snowflakes red flashes follow
15: there once was a lady named sue who had nothing whatever to do and who did it so badly i thought she would gladly have stopped before she was through
16: Villanelle | written by | W. H. Auden
17: Time will say nothing but I told you so, Time only knows the price we have to pay; If I could tell you I would let you know. If we should weep when clowns put on their show, If we should stumble when musicians play, Time will say nothing but I told you so. There are no fortunes to be told, although, Because I love you more than I can say, If I could tell you I would let you know. The winds must come from somewhere when they blow, There must be reasons why the leaves decay; Time will say nothing but I told you so. Perhaps the roses really want to grow, The vision seriously intends to stay; If I could tell you I would let you know. Suppose the lions all get up and go, And all the brooks and soldiers run away; Will Time say nothing but I told you so? If I could tell you I would let you know.
18: Digging Deeper into poems
19: The poem from the page before entitled "If I Could Tell You" written by H.W. Auden is a classic example of a villanelle. It follows the pattern of six verses. All three lines except the last which has four. The rhyming is the first and last line, then the middle of each verse all rhyme. By alternating the first and last line between the end of the verse, you get a villanelle. This poem has a meaning to it, like all poems do. The meaning of this one is simple. Time slips past us before we know it. We should be happy with the time we are given and not waste a minute of it by weeping over what is to come. We need to enjoy every moment of it.
