online poetry workshop


and i'll sometime build you
a house of tin and timber
and i'll surround your picket fence
with ferns and yellow roses

a work in progress is the best work of all.

While this piece is very short, it is hardly lacking in poetic value.  It possesses both a sweetness and a profusion of imagery that appeals to the soul in a way that, though some complicated minds may demand more "meat", as it were, one can read this, having enjoyed it like one would a small cup of sweet tea, and go about their way with the distinct feeling of having been kissed.

You've nothing but a start now. Get to it! 3/10
