This is an amazing poem! I physically felt the stepping back and then the tentative building of a road to the future.

Since you are just sharing a link to the original text I think it is OK to have a share bar.

On a different note:
Are the numbers of readers of our poems accurate? I find it hard to believe that many people have read my poems! Or that each poem has been read that many times!

Goodbye, Anoop!

First, We Take Manhattan

2009-02-26
Part of one of my favorite songs by Leonard Cohen (I like the Bono version), Hallelujah:


Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah


The Shake-Triolet Challenge

I really like this, especially since it is not an obvious poem. Not in the right meter either, another reason to like it.

So happy you found Poetbay. I hope you like it here. Boy, you summed up April Fool's Day with this poem, didn't you. I didn't pull any pranks this year, I didn't have the heart. Well, maybe one little one. LOL

I like this poem. It has a lot more texture than Frost's poem, if I dare to compare the two. Good job!

I liked the use of winter as a symbol for , a lost love type thing. This is very good, subtle, and moving.

This is a good poem. I like it that the last line is an almost Indian saying, it made me rethink the rest of the poem.
