it has to be at least 15-20 lines. I'm thinkin some EE Cummings:

there are so many tictoc
clocks everywhere telling people
what toctic time it is for
tictic instance five toc minutes toc
past six tic

Spring is not regulated and does
not get out of order nor do
its hands a little jerking move
over numbers slowly

we do not
wind it up it has no weights
springs wheels inside of
its slender self no indeed dear
nothing of the kind.

(So,when kiss Spring comes
we'll kiss each kiss other on kiss the kiss
lips because tic clocks toc don't make
a toctic difference
to kisskiss you and to
kiss me)

I was just going to bring up Cummings. Do "I Sing of Olaf Glad and Big". I'd suggest "Buffalo Bill's", but it's too short:

Quote by E. E. Cummings

Buffalo Bill's

(excuse the periods, I couldn't get it to format right)

Ezra Pound and T.S. Elliot are great, too. Man, I loves me some modernist poetry. I don't care for Frost, though. Too straightforward.
Listen to mah discs.



And coming soon, THE CLEVER DEVILS VS. THE BLONDES.

Nothing Gold Can Stay/The Birches

Robert Frost


Both examplify why we find some things so satisfying in life.

Edit: Cummings is great aswell.
Love in technicolour, sprayed out on walls
Well I've been pounding at the pavement
'Til there's nothing at all
I got my cloak and dagger
In a bar room brawl
See the local loves a fighter
Loves a winner to fall

Trees by Joyce Kilmer


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day, 5
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain. 10

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

The only advantage of home-schooling is that it gives you good reason to commit suicide.


Hit this once or twice, and you'll be twice as nice.

T.S Eliot... The Love Song of Alfred J. Prufrock is a fine example of his brilliance.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

"Invictus" by 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 and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.


Another great one is "Desert Places" by Robert Frost.
Hi, I'm Peter
