By: Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see,
a poem lovely as a tree,
a tree whose hungry mouth is pressed,
against the earth's sweet flowing breast,
a tree who looks at God all day,
and lifts her leafy arms to pray,
a tree who may in summer wear,
a nest of robins in her hair,
upon whose bosom snow has lain,
who intimately lives with rain,
poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree.
Here's one of my favorites:
"The Otter and the Ocelot"
(this one is also by memory, the last part is meant to be capitalized)
By: Jack Prelutsky, from the book "It's raining pigs and noodles"
The otter and the ocelot as fortunate as can be,
now sail the seas upon their yacht,
they won the OCELOTTERY.
Hope you enjoy the poems, get inspired to write your own and read more and stuff.
This is my first topic, sorry if I do something wrong, please feel free to say suggestions so I can improve.
But don't only post suggestions you should mainly just share your favorite poems.
(sorry if I have wrong grammar)
