Poem of the day: invictus

InvictusBy William Ernest Henley Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.Beyond this place of wrath andContinue reading “Poem of the day: invictus”

Poem of the day: How did you die?

HOW DID YOU DIE?BY Edmund Vance Cooke Did you tackle that trouble that came your wayWith a resolute heart and cheerful?Or hide your face from the light of dayWith a craven soul and fearful?Oh, a trouble’s a ton, or a trouble’s an ounce,Or a trouble is what you make it,And it isn’t the fact thatContinue reading “Poem of the day: How did you die?”

Poem of the day: A hue

A Hue and Cry after Fair AmoretBy William Congreve FAIR Amoret is gone astray— Pursue and seek her, ev’ry lover;I’ll tell the signs by which you may The wand’ring Shepherdess discover.Coquette and coy at once her air, Both studied, tho’ both seem neglected;Careless she is, with artful care, Affecting to seem unaffected.With skill her eyesContinue reading “Poem of the day: A hue”

Poem of the day: coal

COALBY AUDRE LORDE IIs the total black, being spokenFrom the earth’s inside.There are many kinds of open.How a diamond comes into a knot of flame How a sound comes into a word, coloured By who pays what for speaking.Some words are openLike a diamond on glass windowsSinging out within the crash of passing sunThen thereContinue reading “Poem of the day: coal”
