Funny Short Poems - 947

Poem : Testament by Dorothy Parker

Oh, let it be a night of lyric rain
And singing breezes, when my bell is tolled.
I have so loved the rain that I would hold
Last in my ears its friendly, dim refraln.
I shall lie cool and quiet, who have lain
Fevered, and watched the book of day unfold.
Death will not see me flinch; the heart is bold
That pain has made incapable of pain.

Kinder the busy worms than ever love;
It will be peace to lie there, empty-eyed,
My bed made secret by the leveling showers,
My breast replenishing the weeds above.
And you will say of me, 'Then has she died?
Perhaps I should have sent a spray of flowers.'

Poem : Being Wrong by Gary R. Ferris

There’s one thing about being wrong,

That sometimes can be hard.

It’s that lump that you swallow,

When your inward pride is marred.

*****

The pain that you feel,

And that embarrassing taste;

The emptiness inside,

When your plans are a waste.

*****

Where do you go,

When you want to hide?

To erase the suffering,

You feel inside.

*****




You’re afraid to show your face,

To all of your friends.

Alone and ashamed,

Putting off amends.

*****

Does it all matter,

Who is wrong or right?

When your friend is lost

To fear and fright.

*****

It is only human,

To sometimes be wrong.

So swallow it on down,

And come back where you belong.

*****

We are all here,

Waiting on you.

You know deep down,

You belong here too.

Sonnet Poems : Sonnet: I said I splendidly loved you; it's not true by Rupert Brooke

I said I splendidly loved you; it's not true.
Such long swift tides stir not a land-locked sea.
On gods or fools the high risk falls -- on you --
The clean clear bitter-sweet that's not for me.
Love soars from earth to ecstasies unwist.
Love is flung Lucifer-like from Heaven to Hell.
But -- there are wanderers in the middle mist,
Who cry for shadows, clutch, and cannot tell
Whether they love at all, or, loving, whom:
An old song's lady, a fool in fancy dress,
Or phantoms, or their own face on the gloom;
For love of Love, or from heart's loneliness.
Pleasure's not theirs, nor pain. They doubt, and sigh,
And do not love at all. Of these am I.

Ballad Poems : The Ballad Of The Northern Lights by Robert William Service

One of the Down and Out--that's me. Stare at me well, ay, stare!
Stare and shrink--say! you wouldn't think that I was a millionaire.
Look at my face, it's crimped and gouged--one of them death-mask things;
Don't seem the sort of man, do I, as might be the pal of kings?
Slouching along in smelly rags, a bleary-eyed, no-good bum;
A knight of the hollow needle, pard, spewed from the sodden slum.
Look me all over from head to foot; how much would you think I was worth?
A dollar? a dime? a nickel? Why, I'm the wealthest man on earth.

No, don't you think that I'm off my base. You'll sing a different tune
If only you'll let me spin my yarn. Come over to this saloon;
Wet my throat--it's as dry as chalk, and seeing as how it's you,
I'll tell the tale of a Northern trail, and so help me God, it's true.
I'll tell of the howling wilderness and the haggard Arctic heights,
Of a reckless vow that I made, and how I staked the Northern Lights.
