There’s No Power Like Home

We were sick of home,
Home sick.
That mask around our ear
Hung itself into the year.
Once we stepped into our home,
We found ourselves gasping, tear-
ing it off like a bandage,
Like something that gauzed
The great gape of our mouth. ...

Amanda Gorman
Dear to My Heart

I get so lost viewing the endless sparkling ocean.

The sunlit waves so soft and carefree

laying subtly on the fair surface.

A bridge that leads a perfect tulip

The warm surface of a stone as I feel it across my cheek.

The beating...

Angela Dixon
The Young British Soldier

When the 'arf-made recruity goes out to the East
'E acts like a babe an' 'e drinks like a beast,
An' 'e wonders because 'e is frequent deceased
  Ere 'e's fit for to serve as a soldier.
  Serve, serve, serve as a soldier,
  Serve, serve,...

Rudyard Kipling
The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the...

Robert Frost
My Rap

My Rap,
Can I fly Can I fly,
I wonder why they don’t want to see me fly,
My my my,
I wonder why,
all I get is evil eyes; it ain’t fair but It comes from the squares,
I look up the stairs fall to my knees and give a prayer,
My my my,
I wonder why...

Deshawn Yeldell
Bright Star

  Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art--
  Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
  And watching, with eternal lids apart,
  Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
  The moving waters at their priestlike task

John Keats

What lovely aftermath
is painted in your dust.
You were led through the flaming
core of the earth,
through its stony shell,
webs of farewell in the transient...

Nelly Sachs
On the Just and the Unjust

OUTCAST, a horror to his kind,
 At night he to the forest fled.
There, the birch-bark made fire for him,
 The brown fern made a bed.
The river murmured lullaby,
The moisty mosses breathed of balm,
The clean stars carried...

Blanche Edith Baugh…
Le cancre

Il dit non avec la tête
mais il dit oui avec le coeur
il dit oui à ce qu’il aime
il dit non au professeur
il est debout
on le questionne
et tous les problèmes sont posés
soudain le fou rire le prend
et il efface tout
les chiffres et les mots

Jacques Prévert
After Great Pain, A Formal Feeling Comes

After great pain, a formal feeling comes--
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Toombs--
The stiff Heart questions was it He, that bore,
And Yesterday, or Centuries...

Emily Dickinson
Oh, They have Robbed Me of The Hope

Oh, they have robbed me of the hope
  My spirit held so dear;
They will not let me hear that voice
  My soul delights to hear.
They will not let me see that face
  I so delight to see;
And they have taken all thy smiles,

Anne Brontë
Healing Love

Once I walked around in sadness and defeat
Not knowing where any of lifes roads
Would meet.
Then I met Him at the foot of the cross
Knew then life could never be lost.
For in Him I found healing love.
Love so precious and free
He gave and gives to...
