Nothing Gold Can Stay
By Robert Frost, 1874 - 1963

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Still I Rise
By Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

pokemon love poem

Charmanders are red, squirtles are blue if you were a pokemon, I"d choose you your smile is stronger then a Hyperbeam. like Jesse and James, we"d make the perfect team I"ll love you more than a level 80 Rapidash. you"re more legendary than a Zapdos, Entei or Mew. but out of all the 150 .I choose you

Parchment
By Lucretia

Life is but a blank canvas,
Parchment awaiting ink.
My quill is dipped and ready,
But I can't seem to think.

How can I progress in life,
When writer's block holds me down?
So instead I sit at home alone,
In this dusty little town.

I watch from my window silently,
As others write with ease.
Impatiently I tap my quill,
Life is such a tease.

Only when I truly look,
Do I really see...
My empty book has filled right up,
For what I am is me.

if you like them there will be more to come
