l'antico vampiro

*Not written by me but I think this part of a poem is beautiful that I recently came across again.



Can storied urn or animated bust
Back to its mansion call the fleeting breath?
Can Honour’s voice provoke the silent dust,
Or Flattery soothe the dull cold ear of Death?
Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid
Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire;
Hands that the rod of empire might have swayed,
Or waked to ecstasy the living lyre.
But Knowledge to their eyes her ample page
Rich with the spoils of time did ne’er unroll;
Chill Penury repressed their noble rage,
And froze the genial current of the soul.

Here is my poem "Fantastically Sugaries":

I fell into a cookie jar
I tumbled down into the pit
The walls were lined with gummy worms
And lights of starburst squares were lit

My dress was changed into a mess
Of sticky skittle rainbow goo
My hair was cotton candy curls
And shoes were bubblegum to chew

Then I reached the bottom of
The jar which flowed into a stream,
A stream of swimmy swedish fish
And honey waves of foam whipped cream

Some cupcake sheep flocked on a hill
And bonbon buffalo licked icing grass
The air was scented with sugar flakes
With cinnamon winds blowing past

I flew a kite of chocolate cake
And blew bubbles from brownie batter
And when fireworks of pop rocks burst,
Watch out for the candy splatter

There are houses of crumbly cookies
And dripping candy apple trees,
There's snow storms of powdered sugar
Where you'll need lollipop skis

I love this world of sweets galore
In fact, I think that I will stay
I'll be a sweet tooth citizen
And I'll eat sugar every day!

What's Pooh without Piglet?
Minnie without Mickey?
Cinderella without her Prince?
Thats like me with no you.
When Dumbo's ears shrink
and i can't help but think
"Are happily ever afters really true?"
That's when i will stop loving you <3
(I did this awhile ago its a rewrite of a famous poem)
