Famous Poets Quotations - Top 30 Poetry Quotations by Famous Poets
Two Poems, with Figurative Language
Says Mr. Dennis Siluk, when asked to review his poetry somewhat, for he hesitates all the time when I ask him to so; I can tell you. Anyhow, he said to me (responding more on poem #728, "Derivative Echoes"): "Figurative language, meaning words used to refer to something that you don't really mean, is used here to make noises, as are metaphors sometimes. Probably the reason I used figurative language imagery here was to tie the ideas and feelings my poem [s] expresses [ness] to the physical world in which I want it to exist." He lost me somewhere along the line, but it sounded good when I read the poems. Rosa Penaloza.
Kafka lands resurrected in Crewe deposited by a silvery alien craft, And whilst he is wondering what to do He is asked to show his pass Or pay an instant one off fine At a cash dispenser of his choice And they are checking all the time On his irises face and voice.

Robert Burns Love Poem: A Red, Red Rose
Robert Burns, a poor man, an educated man, and a ladies' man, is representative of Scotland, much like whisky, haggis, bagpipes, and kilts. He lived a life shortened by rheumatic heart disease, 1759-1796, but his life journey through poverty, informal education, disappointed love, nationalism, and literary and financial success can be identified by all Scots and common men the world over. He has become almost a national symbol of all things Scottish. His life is like a love story with a happy ending.

Daybreak at Pikes Creek [a Poem]
Daybreak at Pikes Creek [Summer of 2005]
Growing hurts sometimes; saying goodbye to friends, to things you've known and done to things you wanted to do. † Growing heals sometimes the shattered dreams and hopes of a life you once knew leading you to a new knowledge of yourself. † Growing is fun sometimes meeting new friends learning new things making changes that feel good and moving on. † Growing is necessary always. Without change there is stagnation death instead of life. To choose to live is to choose to grow. † † † † Copyright 2002
