Spring is in the air

National Poetry Month

In honor of National Poetry Month, a few poems from one of my favorites:  Edna St. Vincent Millay

 

"Hyacinth"

I am in love with him to whom a hyacinth is dearer

Than I shall ever be dear.

On nights when the field mice are abroad he cannot sleep:

He hears their narrow teeth at the bulbs of his  hyacinths,

But the gnawing at my heart he does not hear.

 

"Feast"

I drank at every vine.

   The last was like the first,

I came upon no wine.

   So wonderful as thirst.

 

I gnawed at every root.

   I ate of every plant.

I came upon no fruit

   So wonderful as want.

 

Feed the grape and bean

   To the vintner and monger;

I will lie down lean

   With my thirst and my hunger.

How fun to read about each of you and your truly dVerse <a href="http://unebwhbm.com">bandkroucgs!</a> I think you make a great team and will reach many other poets out there searching for an encouraging community to share their words.

For example: once you hire someone and fill a position, you should always plan a month in advance to have corporate reniisspbiloty. Even though this process has been quite successful in placing a good candidate. This process assists companies in determining whether labor supply for specific job categories. http://cmoeurwhm.com [url=http://pbpqav.com]pbpqav[/url] [link=http://pvuzugn.com]pvuzugn[/link]

So far it looks very promising. I&#039;ll have to spend more time today looking at it more closely. I do have one question though. Since this is a five week <a href="http://zxjjfd.com">curucirlum,</a> can I assume that you are planning to kick it off the last week of March so that it ends on Easter Sunday?

Loupé, ça existe toujours. Il n&rsquo;y a qu&rsquo;à voir les jeux dÃÂimatérial©sés de la Xbox360. Tellement saturé de DRM, qu&rsquo;il ne suffit pas d&rsquo;importer son compte sur une nouvelle console : il faut réimporter les contrats de licences pour en profiter et prouver que c&rsquo;est bien toi. http://hnaniay.com [url=http://banqmkv.com]banqmkv[/url] [link=http://duzcmu.com]duzcmu[/link]

Listening to the whispering pines

Hello. My name is Donna Cozart Pauley. Welcome to The Whispering Pines, a literary blog dedicated to my love of the written word. It is an eclectic collage of my life -- from my poems to my stories to my family to my pets to my causes to my photographs to my recipes to my love of teaching to my favorite literature. Please feel free to comment. Words are only important if they are heard or read. Just like those soundless trees falling in the forest.
