Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Random Poem:

Nature at Night
arianna

The night time sky
 1
Shines real bright.
 2
The stars shimmer,
 3
And the moon shines.
 4
Many crickets chirp,
 5
To keep the sound of music going.
 6
A small breeze goes by,
 7
And sounds are carried out
 8
Through the wind.
 9
Tall shadows are cast by trees
 10
To make the forest seem dark.
 11
But the moon is there.
 12
It will help you see.
 13
Noises are heard.
 14
Somethings coming.
 15
