Favorite Quote:
There can be no society without poetry, but society can never be realized as poetry, it is never poetic. Sometimes the two terms seek to break apart. They cannot.
-Octavio Paz

Sing as each day writes a song.
Fill the air when joy is gone.
I am a bird; clip my wing.
Bind my hands and I will sing.

The author's comments:
Sing, and endure.

This is poetry club.  We enjoyed your poem. We found meaning in your second line, and Mr. Hobson thought that the last two lines were very powerful.

Great poem! I love to sing and I think your poem really says a lot about singing/music and what it can do for you which is cool especially because the poem is so short. I also really like the picture. Way to go!
