Sometimes Swim, but not all poetry needs to be complicated. There is beauty in simple meanderings.

I saw a sun touched cloud
up in the autumn sky
silently it drifted
dancing from on high

It's silver edges gleaming
Its white lace crown so proud
I wish I could have that feeling
while stand on this ground

But clouds are naught but water
and sunlight fades away
so my heart will simply whisper
and murmur your sweet name

. The Tiger
TIGER, tiger, burning bright   
In the forests of the night,   
What immortal hand or eye   
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?   
In what distant deeps or skies         
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?   
On what wings dare he aspire?   
What the hand dare seize the fire?   
And what shoulder and what art   
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?   
What dread hand and what dread feet?   
What the hammer? what the chain?   
In what furnace was thy brain?   
What the anvil? What dread grasp   
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?   
When the stars threw down their spears,   
And water'd heaven with their tears,   
Did He smile His work to see?   
Did He who made the lamb make thee?   
Tiger, tiger, burning bright   
In the forests of the night,   
What immortal hand or eye   
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?   
William Blake

There be none of beauty's daughters

(Lord George Byron, 1788-1824)

Here be none of Beauty's daughters
With a magic like Thee;

And like music on the waters
Is thy sweet voice to me:

When, as if its sound were causing
The charmed ocean's pausing,

The waves lie still and gleaming,
And the lulled winds seem dreaming:

And the midnight moon is weaving
Her bright chain o'er the deep,

Whose breast is gently heaving
As an infant's asleep:

So the spirit bows before thee
To listen and adore thee;

With a full but soft emotion,
Like the swell of Summer's ocean.
(beast ex machina)

I like poetry in any languages. i  would like to say the arts and poetry more affective than technologies at times.

English poetry is death, gloom and doom, and sorrow...
Chinese poetry evolves around love, fond memories, reflections,
pain, wisdom, philosophy and written artistry... Chinese poetry gets
turned into musicals, English poetry can not or has not...

a) The very first English poem I learn high school:

b) The poems that are Chinese folklore and that I've come to love:

Which would prefer to reflex with? a)? or b)? I'm the b) type...

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
