Funny Short Poems - 886

Poem : Juan In Middle Age by Vernon Scannell

The appetite which leads him to her bed
Is not unlike the lust of boys for cake
Except he knows that after he has fed
He'll suffer more than simple belly-ache.

He'll groan to think what others have to pay
As price for his obsessive need to know
That he's a champion still, though slightly grey,
And both his skill and gameness clearly show.

And after this quick non-decision bout,
As he in his dark corner gasping lies,
He'll hear derision like a distant shout
While kisses press like pennies on his eyes.

Poem : Suttee by Sarojini Naidu

LAMP of my life, the lips of Death
Hath blown thee out with their sudden breath;
Naught shall revive thy vanished spark . . .
Love, must I dwell in the living dark?


Tree of my life, Death's cruel foot
Hath crushed thee down to thy hidden root;
Nought shall restore thy glory fled . . .
Shall the blossom live when the tree is dead?


Life of my life, Death's bitter sword
Hath severed us like a broken word,
Rent us in twain who are but one . .
Shall the flesh survive when the soul is gone?

Poem : In The Slight Ripple, The Mind Perceives The Heart by Delmore Schwartz

In the slight ripple, the fishes dart
Like fingers, centrifugal, like wishes
Wanton. And pleasures rise
as the eyes fall
Through the lucid water. The small pebble,
The clear clay bottom, the white shell
Are apparent, though superficial.
Who would ask more of the August afternoon?
Who would dig mines and follow shadows?
'I would,' answers bored Heart, 'Lounger, rise'
(Underlip trembling, face white with stony anger),
'The old error, the thought of sitting still,
'The senses drinking, by the summer river,
'On the tended lawn, below the traffic,
'As if time would pause,
and afternoon stay.
'No, night comes soon,
'With its cold mountains, with desolation,
unless Love build its city.'

Poem : A field of cotton by Matsuo Basho

A field of cotton--
as if the moon
had flowered.
