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:

The Signs of Winter
Hmm

The trees are now bare,
 1
And the wind has grown cold.
 2
The sun seems to have lost its glare.
 3
Yet these are just the signs of winter (or so I have been told).
 4
 
 
The birds have gone to the warm sun lit lands.
 5
So, I am left here alone to grow old.
 6
For warmth I rub together my dry stiff hands.
 7
Yet these are just the signs of winter (or so I have been told).
 8
 
 
The grass has long since faded away,
 9
And the cheerful autumn has lost its hold.
 10
The sky is turning from blue to gray.
 11
Yet these are just the signs of winter (or so I have been told)
 12
