Anybody like writing

Anybody like writing poems? I'm a huge fan of Langston Hughs. I made up an extent to "Dream Deffered" while doodling, you could say, in 2nd grade. Let me try and dig it out...

Ah, here it is!

Or does it melt away like the Wicked Witch?

Or does it become like a computer with a glitch?

So what happens with a dream deferred?

I'm sure it will

Fly away, like a small lonely bird.


I really love Charles Schulz! Here's something I made, too, for this guessing game...

A poet, that's a clue

You now know it

"Old Brown Shoe"

A favorite song, not for long

Charles Schulz coulda been wrong

The world could end

'cause just around the bend

Australia is gone

He-he, you know, for that quote, "Today is not the end of the world, because it's already tomorrow in Aus--" Oh forget it.  These are some of my worst poems. *frustrated look* I have thrown away all my good ones, thinking they are too depressing. Ah, well. At least I have written many songs and have not thrown them away. Don't get me started on lyrics... *stuffs sock in mouth*

*looks cheerful* So! Anyone else like to write poems? Like to write lyrics?

I love writing poems, for me it's a huge stress reliever.

Same here; a HUGE stress releiver, especially when I wrote this:

My flower, has withered
The leaves are teared
The color so rotten
smell lingering in the air
Small Jasmine, like vanilla
the color so bright
has gone down to nothing,
almost over night.

The stem is still green, but dry it may be
The poor little flower
has died because of me.

OK, here it is...

Some say they  are gone, known only to a young world of magic,

But I say:

Where falling flakes take on life, Icy forms dancing from the clouds,

There are still fairies.

Where crashing waves rise up, to tumble and flow down her back, her arms to the sky,

There are still fairies.

Where the airborne silken globe of rainbows holds a delicate glass form,

There are sill fairies.

Where the lily on the still pond opens, and she emerges like silk by moonlight,

There are still fairies. 

Wherever you go, little do you know,

There are still fairies.

Not as long as I thought it was. I better submit this, i'm already regretting telling this...

Wow, Emily, that's great!!!! I really like the part about snow. Anyway, here's a poem I did. It's not very good, but it's from 3rd grade><



If you saw the wind, what would you see?

Would it be in a window, or up in a tree?

Would it hide in the bushes, or fly up so free?

Were we ever meant to know, where the wind will actually blow?

Yeah, its not that good...

That's amazing! How can you write poems so well? I'm pretty good at stories but stink at poems, which is really annoying because I love reading them!

Eh, I wrote a 45-line poem about guardrails once, for an English assignment. It was pretty fun. I think it's on one of the old MB Poems & Songs threads... *goes off to checK*

Ah, yes. Wow, that was back when I was still lilbro... >_< Time flies!

Anyway it was on the v. 2006.5 thread, if you want to look it up.

Or not. :)

Thanks! I was just thinking about Charles Schultz at the time because of a newspaper article, and his quote just popped into my head.

Here's a poem of my own making.

If I had a choice

Between pickles and liver,

I'd choose the latter, 

Because pickles are bitter.
