Does anyone write poetry? Do you have a favorite poem, sonnet, or prayer you'd like to share? I love to read poetry. It can be romantic, meaningful, or funny. I always liked Shel Silverstein, "Where the sidewalk Ends". They were amusing as a child! http://folktalesmyths.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_poetry_of_shel_silverstein Dr. Seuss was an all-time favorite that I still read to my kids too! http://www.gpschools.org/ci/ce/elem/holidays/drseuss.htm

I like writing songs and poetry but they're not much in terms of standard I think. Love Shakespeare- doing 12th Night for Literature in school now. Here's my favourite sonnet of his #116 Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come: Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

how's this? I sensed the end was near. I saw the emptiness in his eyes. I heard the troubled sounds of his breathing. I felt him slipping away… I continued to hope…and dream… But the raging waters ran too deep, consuming everything --- except his soul.
