Would you like to share your favorite poems, or song verses?
And if you’d like you can even share why you like what you have chosen.
I actually have 4 poems that are my favorite. The first 3 are by the same author. The last one I do not have a link to so I will just type the poem. I really like the depth of the poems and each one speaks to me and has also taught me something bigger.
#3)The Bed by the Window
This poem highly interests me because the author Robison Jeffers had chosen the bed as a good death-bed. Jeffers did eventually die in the bed, just as he had planned to, but not until 30 years after he first published the poem.
#4)Larson’s Holstein Bull
Death waits inside us for a door to open.
Death is patient as a dead cat.
Death is a doorknob made of flesh.
Death is that angelic farm girl
gored by the bull on her way home
from school, crossing the pasture
for a shortcut. In the seventh grade
she couldn’t read or write. She wasn’t a virgin.
She was “simpleminded,” we all said.
It was May, a time of lilacs and shooting stars.
She’s lived in my memory for sixty years.
Death steals everything except our stories.
I’m looking forward to hearing and learning more amazing stuff provided by you :)
