High School | Short Famous Poems and Poets

 
by Richard Brautigan

Gee Youre So Beautiful That Its Starting To Rain

 Oh, Marcia, 
I want your long blonde beauty
to be taught in high school,
so kids will learn that God
lives like music in the skin
and sounds like a sunshine harpsicord.
I want high school report cards to look like this: Playing with Gentle Glass Things A Computer Magic A Writing Letters to Those You Love A Finding out about Fish A Marcia's Long Blonde Beauty A+!


by Robert Burns

 YE maggots, feed on Nicol’s brain,
 For few sic feasts you’ve gotten;
And fix your claws in Nicol’s heart,
 For deil a bit o’t’s rotten.


by Robert Burns

 HONEST 1 Will to Heaven’s away
 And mony shall lament him;
His fau’ts they a’ in Latin lay,
 In English nane e’er kent them.
Note 1.
Of the Edinburgh High School.
