Shadows cast upon the sill
Sleepers lying lifeless, still
Dreaming of bright sunlit skies
Dark-ringed circles mark their eyes
Candles burn down to their end
Last lights, into darkness send
Panes reflect their twilight gaze
The wind outside whispers of days
A herald of the creeping dawn
A sleepers stirs, stifles a yawn
But settles back down into bed
World weary faces mock the dead
Outside the stars begin to fade
The night retreats, the moon has strayed

Pardon me for being rude
It was not me, it was my food
It just popped up to say hello
And...now it's gone back down below. :P

ugh, I dont like poems :x

I do not like the silly poem,
I do not like the angsty poem,
I do not like the ridiculous poem,
I do not like the damned poem,
I do not like the cheesy poem,
I do not like the random poem,
Or the epic poem,
Or the dandy poem,
Or the long poem,
Or the short poem,
Or the stupid poem,
Or the rude poem,
Or the useless poem,
Or the wordless poem,
Or the poem poem,
Or the poem poem's
Or the word, Poem


(btw, I didnt write that, but found it online :lol: )

"Oh beans, beans, I love my beans, better than chicken or turnip greens!

Now, butter beans and navy beans are fine, you will agree-
or black-eyed peas and pinto beans, they all taste good to me-
I never get enough of them, I guess I never will,
I eat so many beans, they make be bathe in chlorophyl-

I went to see my girl last night, that girl is really smart-
she knows that through my stomach, is the shortcut to my heart-
she cooked a pot of beans for me, and I had quite a snack!
As soon as I got up, I blew the shirt right off my back!

One evening, I was playing pool with some of my old gang,
down at the local billiard parlor where the boys all hang,
I looked around and sneaked one out, just as an airplane passed,
'My God, they yelled, a war is started! We're all being gassed!'

I had some beans for dinner, and went to see a show,
no sooner than I sat down, than the winds began to blow-
the people all around me soon began to hold their breath-
strong men began to weep, and 18 women choked to death!

I went out to a party, it was in a crowded room,
and pretty soon the air was filled, with black-eyed-pea perfume-
a guy pulled-out a gas-mask, as he headed for the door,
he said 'I came prepared, because I heard of you before!'

One day, I took a boatride, and my beans would not behave-
I blew the boat from under me, and caused a tidal wave!
and once I went into the biggest building in the town,
next day a wrecking crew was there, to tear the building down!

Once I went to a concert, in a very swanky hall,
before the show was through, I nearly caused a free-for-all!
I accidently let one out, and hit the key of G-
a baritone upon the stage, was thrown plumb out of key!

Beans, beans, I love my beans, better than chicken or tuurrr-nip greeeeens!"

[from an old 50s novelty ditty]

My favorite poetry is by Dr Seuss! :D , and any childrens book/peotry in that style (although few people can copy the style of meter Dr Seuss used)

Huh? Something of this kind?
