Hey, Its Kirsten. I love poetry and have quite a few favorites. Some of the poems I like are by famous Poets but some are unknown. I’ve decided to share some of my recent favorites with you. Hope you enjoy!

Where the Sidewalk Ends By: Shel Silverstein

 There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.
Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we’ll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we’ll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.



Fire & Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice

From what I’ve tasted of desire,

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction,

Ice is also great,

And would suffice.

By: Robert Frost




Some dream of a peace not imposed by UN soldiers or weapons of war
The dream of peace where in reality, we must first lose sight of the shore

Some pursue the peace known to them as the little white dove
A peace in which each creed, color and race can love

Some search for the peace that begins not with war
The peace that men of arms need not die for

Some question the peace that we supposedly have today
The peace in which rain still falls and clouds are grey

Some speak of a true peace in which the world can live free
A peace that is only a hope and will never actually be
