Premium Member Over The Hill

some low shrubs.

At the top we are panting;
an old man and his old dog.
Nevertheless I feel great,
I shout in a weak...Read More

BEHOLD, that special soothing tides of youth,
wherein it surges per paints blending times,
dries up in seconds treasured as it climbs,

For 200 years I've been enslaved by your fears
Shallow blemishes colors not representative

Thoughts of a MidDot
Thoughts of a “Mid-Dot : (•)”

A couple of centuries back, I was recognized,
marked as mid-dot ; all were mesmerized.
I was most required for all. I was utilized
in literature extensively. But they improvised;

Resulting efforts made me redundant
The authors were reluctant
To use...Read More

The leaves were turning red and gold;
And frost was in the air.
When they rounded up the Acadians,
From Miquelon and Saint Pierre.

It was a time for groaning;
A cry from Cajun lips.
When they rounded up those Frenchmen;
And loaded them on ships.

So they...Read More
