Favorite Quote:
All right then, I'll go to hell
-Mark Twain

An expressive form of art
Simplistic, but beautiful,
Entertaining words of wisdom,
That float in your mind, urging it to ponder,
Loving and natural,
An immortal art
That has survived many years
And will survive many more,
The last remaining words of a genius
Poetry is the cry of a wolf
The warmth of a kiss
The sound of the sea,
The agony of death
Poetry is the ecstasy of life
And the depression of life
It is all that can be said and done
In naught but a few words,
An expressive form of art
Simplistic, but beautiful
