Oliver Twist - The Poem

By: Ms. Dr. Juliette E Smeed; Frances E Ryder, Illustrator

Oliver's tale has been retold on stage, in graphic novels and on small and large screens. This time the story is transformed into a rhyming poem in which no actor or scene is overlooked. The abiding tale of childhood crime and redemption transformed yet again

Oliver Twist is a story of suffering. Delicate readers will likely need buffering From many episodes drawn from the life Of this orphan boy born into sorrow and strife. And from villains whose deeds are so truly appalling, I have to conclude they were bred to the calling. The first of his problems was losing his mother. The second, a truly despicable brother – But more on that later, for here at the start There’s some critical background I have to impart. Lik...

Thump : Poems by Daniel Hansen: Poems by Daniel Hansen

By: Daniel Hansen

A short collection of poems by Daniel Hansen

THUMP There is a porcelain sheen to your step, Boy, go down to the hill; stop, pick it up. A day, a tobacco day, tonguing its hilarity: find it, pull it out; it is -- knotted to the hill. Boy -- you dig your knuckles in the loam that squats on the dime store slope, that hoots at you like the bony girl with mushroom-cap breasts freckled and pallid, lapping at your clavicle. You plow into its rooty pubes, fall outside the seventh cloud, its mo...

Le Mystère du Silence : Anthologie de Lucian Blaga: Anthologie de ...

By: Philippe RAMEZ

Pour éclairer cette autre Dimension si obscure et si énigmatique, ce Rien que la raison ne peut expliquer, il suffit parfois de se laisser entraîner par le souffle de créativité qui reflète l’âme du poète. Ainsi, les textes de Lucian Blaga nous font entrevoir le Mystère de celui qu’il appelle le "Grand anonyme" et qui, selon lui, n’est que Silence.

Il existe un état de vegetatum supérieur. L’âme de tout grand poète, avant qu’il ne soit né, aspirait à devenir arbre mais elle ne parvint qu’à devenir homme. C’est pour cela que les pensées des poètes ressemblent tellement aux fleurs.

СРЕЩА / STRETNUTIE

By: Mrs. Kristin Stoyanova Yurukova

Poems dedicated to Czech and Slovak culture.

РЪЧЕНИЦАТА НА ИВАН МЪРКВИЧКА Когато музиката достигне до ръба на съществуващото, до дъното на клетките, телата потръпват като мълнии и намират пулса, пулсирането на слънчевия кръг и се въртят около земята и около себе си, докато се нажежат до черно слънце и протуберансите му сами изстрелят танцъорите напред и назад във времето. И самият Баучер не може да се пусне от “Ръченицата”, в нея завинаги е Танцъорът на Мърквичка. В Чехия не са зърнали своя...

ЦВЕТНИЦА / PALMSONNTAG

By: Mrs. Kristin Stoyanova Yurukova

Poems about nature and people.

ЦВЕТНИЦА Пчелите възпяват меда на обичта човешка. Палмовите листа раснат тихо под магарешките нозе. Иконата вдишва дъха на цветята, въздухът пърха с листа от варак. Влизането в сърцето. Всяко сърце е един Йерусалим. Има толкова много за спасяване. Достатъчна е само едно слово. Онова, което беше в самото начало.
