Edgar Allan Poe: The Angel of the Odd: THE ANGEL OF THE ODD - Free Online Library IT was a chilly November afternoon. I had just consummated an unusually hearty dinner, of which the dyspeptic truffe formed not the least important item, and was sitting alone in the dining-room, with my feet upon the fender, and at my elbow a small table which I had rolled up to the fire, and upon which were some apologies for dessert, with some miscellaneous bottles of wine, spirit andliqueur. In the morning I had been reading Glover's "Leonidas," Wilkie's "Epigoniad," Lamartine's "Pilgrimage," Barlow's "Columbiad," Tuckermann's "Sicily," and Griswold's "Curiosities" ; I am willing to confess, therefore, that I now felt a little stupid. I made effort to arouse myself by aid of frequent Lafitte, and, all failing, I betook myself to a stray newspaper in despair. "This folio of four pages, happy work Which not even critics criticise," when I felt my attention somewhat aroused by the paragraph which follows : "The avenues to death are numerous and strange. "Humph !" "Who are you, pray ?"

Poet Seers - Poem of the Day — Poet Seers Love Unkind by Jack Prost There was a time when we used to laughPlay games together to make time passWatch movies alone in a long embraceTalk about our day face to faceSit on our porch and watch the rainInvite friends over to entertain Share our dreams, our hopes, and desiresMake plans for our future together by a fireTravel together and be quite contentIn the company of each other in our little tent There was a time when our love was pure Simple desires that were so surePassion, devotion, emotion, and blissWe dedicated our love with a ring and a kiss Our lives are somewhat different nowSomething happened, I am not sure howTime has passed without much of a signOf why I am no longer yours and you are no longer mine

O wily painter, limiting the scene From a cacophony of dusty forms To the one convulsion, what is it you mean In that wide gesture of the lifting arms? No Ananias croons a mystery yet, Casting the pain out under name of sin. I turn, hardly enlightened, from the chapel To the dim interior of the church instead, In which there kneel already several people, Mostly old women: each head closeted In tiny fists holds comfort as it can. Thom Gunn Santa Maria del Popolo (i.e.
