Wittywonka slinks around
avoiding his own thread.
The only poems there to be found
most likely went unread.
The truth it seems, sad and profound,
is that we've been misled.
When Wonka's thread crashed to the ground
he left us all for dead.

While this may not be as fun or exciting as submitting poetry for competition, I wanted to take the initiative and start a thread for sharing and commenting on meaningful, thoughtful, and appropriate [b]original poetry. I don't know whether this kind of thread has been attempted in the past, nor do I know whether it will survive beyond more than about a dozen posts, but I would like to attempt it nonetheless.[/b]
Originally posted by divegeesterVery good! Maybe I will be inspired to write something I can share. I know there are some good poets in these forums. Evidently they have not checked out the culture forum.
Ode to rwingett
He posteth here he posteth there, in chess, and gen, and spirit,
Pen’s edge of sword and clash of steel in challenge, sage and wit;
Intrigued I scan this foreign page that draws with ebb of tide
There is herein a poets bloom which neither curse, nor pride, can hide
