Godmother By Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker

The day that I was christened-
It’s a hundred years, and more!-
A hag came and listened
At the white church door,
A-hearing her that bore me
And all my kith and kin
Considerately, for me,
Renouncing sin.
While some gave me corals,
And some gave me gold,
And porringers, with morals
Agreeably scrolled,
The hag stood, buckled
In a dim gray cloak;
Stood there and chuckled,
Spat, and spoke:
“There’s few enough in life’ll
Be needing my help,
But I’ve got a trifle
For your fine young whelp.
I give her sadness,
And the gift of pain,
The new-moon madness,
And the love of rain.”
And little good to lave me
In their holy silver bowl
After what she gave me-
Rest her soul!

The Madman – His Parables And Poems By Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran

You ask me how I became a madman. It happened thus: One day, long
before many gods were born, I woke from a deep sleep and found all
my masks were stolen,–the seven masks I have fashioned an worn in
seven lives,–I ran maskless through the crowded streets shouting,
‘Thieves, thieves, the cursed thieves.’

Men and women laughed at me and some ran to their houses in fear
of me.

And when I reached the market place, a youth standing on a house-top
cried, ‘He is a madman.’ I looked up to behold him; the sun kissed
my own naked face for the first time. For the first time the sun
kissed my own naked face and my soul was inflamed with love for
the sun, and I wanted my masks no more. And as if in a trance I
cried, ‘Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks.’

Thus I became a madman.

And I have found both freedom of loneliness and the safety from
being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in
us.

But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail
is safe from another thief.

I Robbed The Woods By Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson

I robbed the Woods—
The trusting Woods.
The unsuspecting Trees
Brought out their Burs and mosses
My fantasy to please.
I scanned their trinkets curious—I grasped—I bore away—
What will the solemn Hemlock—
What will the Oak tree say?

Inspiration By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Not like a daring, bold, aggressive boy,
Is inspiration, eager to pursue,
But rather like a maiden, fond, yet coy,
Who gives herself to him who best doth woo.

Once she may smile, or thrice, thy soul to fire,
In passing by, but when she turns her face,
Thou must persist and seek her with desire,
If thou wouldst win the favor of her grace.

And if, like some winged bird she cleaves the air,
And leaves thee spent and stricken on the earth,
Still must thou strive to follow even there,
That she may know thy valor and thy worth.

Then shall she come unveiling all her charms,
Giving thee joy for pain, and smiles for tears;
Then shalt thou clasp her with possessing arms,
The while she murmurs music in thine ears.

But ere her kiss has faded from thy cheek,
She shall flee from thee over hill and glade,
So must thou seek and ever seek and seek
For each new conquest of this phantom maid.

The Wise Dog By Khalil Gibran

Khalil Gibran

One day there passed by a company of cats a wise dog.

And as he came near and saw that they were very intent and heeded
him not, he stopped.

Then there arose in the midst of the company a large, grave cat and
looked upon them and said, ‘Brethren, pray ye; and when ye have
prayed again and yet again, nothing doubting, verily then it shall
rain mice.’

And when the dog heard this he laughed in his heart and turned from
them saying, ‘O blind and foolish cats, has it not been written and
have I not known and my fathers before me, that that which raineth
for prayer and faith and supplication is not mice but bones.’

Huh? A Halloween Obese Letter?

Health enthusiasts never fail to surprise me.

Word circulated today about a North Dakota woman whose intention was to shame fat trick-or-treaters; she planned on doing that by giving the Halloween fat obese letters to obese children that knocked on her door and cheerfully said, “Trick or treat!”

In my opinion, she is being a bit too harsh. Only a cruel person would want to humiliate fat children.

I would have done this if I were her: I would have placed a sample of organically grown fruits and vegetables in the baskets of children (Whether they were fat or slim).

The woman was concerned about their poor eating habits and decided to take things in her own hands.

I believe that my method is the most diplomatic one; however after their first trick-or-treat at my house, they may never want to comeback for the next Halloween celebration (Those who show up the following year would probably be vegan kids looking for a healthy snack option).

I Wouldn’t Want To Be In President Obama’s Shoes

The US President is currently having a very hard time; his approval rating has dropped to its lowest this week (Which could only mean that the American people are not pleased with his performance).

Those of us who live in the Caribbean are looking on closely. We have also speculated that the problem of the partial government shutdown probably has a lot to do with the situation that President Obama is in today.

From the way things are looking, the American people may not re-elect him as President when election-time comes around again.
