Your heart weeps the greater things,

I taste the fruit yet again.

Ummm. I think we need a seperate poetry forum.

Troub is getting all "holier than thou" with his poetry!!

I don't care what you say Troub, there's nothing wrong with consuming the poetry of Yeats.

Take this!:

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

I like some of his other stuff, im just saying... lol
Oh here we go again Mr Arrogant Poetrygan. You just think you're so much better than me because you know more about Yeats than I do.

In reality, if it's not Shakespeare, I'm not that interested.

But I love that Yeats poem because it was featured in one of my all-time favoritist movies: Equilibrium.

I seriously have feelings for Christian Bale that, were he aware of them, would make him uncomfortable.

There's no way I have the patience to line that up in verse.

That's impressive for having done it in 9th or 10th grade.


I've done whole plays and I can barely remember a bloody thing. :hangheadinshame:

Let us not forget the most eloquent poetry of the modern age:

Quote:
In A.D. 2101

War was beginning.

Captain: What happen ?

Mechanic: Somebody set up us the bomb.

Operator: We get signal.

Captain: What !

Operator: Main screen turn on.

Captain: It's You !!

Cats: How are you gentlemen !!

Cats: All your base are belong to us.

Cats: You are on the way to destruction.

Captain: What you say !!

Cats: You have no chance to survive make your time.

Cats: HA HA HA HA ....

Captain: Take off every 'zig' !!

Captain: You know what you doing.

Captain: Move 'zig'.

Captain: For great justice.
...its beautiful...
