Abou Ben Adhem by James Henry Leigh Hunt

Abou Ben Adhem by Leigh Hunt

“Abou Ben Adhem” is a short poem that says the best expression of the love of God is the love for fellow human beings. It’s neither the prayers nor the church services that get you in the good books of God.

The Light – Kilee Simon

There are times when we are doing something and we are very confident in ourselves, but those around us put us down and tell us to give up. In times like this we must think about our goal and why we started (the light) and realize how far we’ve come and say that we have come too far to turn back now. We must be fully invested.

Remember by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Remember | A Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti

This poem describes the fear of Christina Georgina Rossetti, not from death but from the fact that her lover might not remember her after she is gone. But as the poem progresses, she accept that for a greater good, it would be better if he forgets her and live happily, rather than remember and be sad.

The Patience of Ordinary Things by Pat Schneider

The Patience of Ordinary Things by Pat Schneider

The beauty of this poem lies in its simplicity. How the writer is able to find the greatest of the virtues in the simplest of things.
Everything that we witness daily, the things that are doing nothing more than the routine things are the biggest epitome of patience.

Wild Geese | A Poem by Mary Oliver

“Wild Geese” is an attempt by Oliver to inspire people to be true to themselves and nature rather than run a never-ending race to be perfect for people. And that “you” are not alone with a life full of despair. There are millions, and you will definitely find someone to share it with. You just need some patience. This is also and attempts by the poet to promote human connectivity.

Fear no more the heat o’ the sun William Shakespeare

Fear no more the heat o’ the sun|A Song by William Shakespeare

This song is a very famous song from the play Cymbeline. It simply means that you need not really fear death. Death is inevitable. Each one of us, be it royalty or the common class, everyone eventually will “come to dust”. All that we do and all that we become will lose its existence one day. And we need not fear it.

J. W. Cassandra: Gyökértelen lét

Rootless Life, by J. W. Cassandra. The poem I wrote yesterday morning and haven’t put into any of my volumes. yet. The versions alter a bit from each other in Hungarian and in English. The poem itself refers to or echoes somewhat my old short story, titled “Rootlessly”. It was written in my 16-year-old age and I gained with it an invitation to the 1st conference and meeting of student-poets and that of writers, held country-wide. There had been there 50 students at all of them. And I’m in a deep sorry for loosing the short story, so I decided to share this “echo”- poem…

Look To This Day | Poem by Kalidasa

This poem is a perfect word of wisdom for all the people. This tells you the importance of today. The fact that you are able to breathe, it gives you the list of possibilities, the buffet of the courses of action from which you can wisely choose the best one.

Exposure | A poem by Wilfred Owen

Exposure | A Poem by Wilfred Owen

This is one of the finest poems written by Wilfred Owen, in the backdrop of WWI.
In this poem, he talks about how the soldiers sentiently keep waiting for the possible exposure to death, in the poorest of weather conditions. Always ready to die, their brains ache. ‘But nothing happens’. It highlights the effect of the weather on battle-weary soldiers and in addition puts their plight into context when it momentarily touches on the dream of a return home.
