Here is a potpourri of the titles of my favorite poems. CHALLENGE: Post the first few lines in the comments. I look forward to seeing how many are familiar to all of you.
Nothing gold can stay
Still I rise
Life is fine
Winter to Spring
Do not go gentle into that good night
because i could not stop for death
My heart leaps up
Mother to Son
I carry your heart with me
The second coming
If you forget me
Oh Captain, My Captain
I wandered lonely as a cloud
There are so many others but the list would be endless. I thank my wonderful teachers that introduced to poetry. My father loved poetry and taught to read poetry aloud in order to make sense of the poems I could not really understand. I hope these titles inspire you to read aloud. Remember poetry is life and life is poetry.
I respectfully ask your help to advance Cancer research. I am donating proceeds from my mask sales at Threadless.com. and Shopvida.com/melbachristie. These are all my original designs. Simply order your mask and I will donate the portion that would be my earnings for the sale.
If you wish you can also donate whatever you can to support Colon and Breast Cancer Research to whatever entity you choose. I will be eternally grateful for your cooperation.
This post was one from when I first started this blog which is now 9 years old. I hope my daughter does not mind that I am re-blogging this post. She is now the mother of two adorable and BEAUTIFUL little girls, I am so proud of her. Happy Anniversary to Poemattic. I also want to thank my followers.
