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:

About Fun

Take me to a big park,
walk me to the zoo.
Bring me a bowl of cold milk,
or a different point of view.
I want a taste of ice-cream,
I want a drop of dew.
I want an hour day dream,
and joyful tears a few.
A dose of sweetest sugar,
a bucket colour paint.
Some rising water vapour,
and three house full of saint.
I want to go to dancing,
a decorated floor.
A television singing,
and a golden shiny ball.
