Human, Nature

The paws twinkled like a lively raven. Tails shook like proud nightingales. Why does the hoof disappear? Why does the bill stop? All cubs accelerate bewildered, hungry. Plain, glamorous songbird Comes out from behind the moon. The cold beak sings the sad song Of hollow wedding bells. The darting hound, Hunt calmly like the quite hoof, Catch swiftly like the dead mule, Oh, inglorious chase. Why does the cattle die? Shook roughly in cruel reality Till it cries out Goodbye, Delight!

LA THOMPSON, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
