Happy Bad Poetry Day

0 Comment

In order to recognize and avoid bad poetry we need to first read and appreciate good poetry. For those already familiar with the beauty of poetry as well as the mental and health benefits associated, we recommend that you pick up your favorite collection and dive right in. For those who have yet to experience and appreciate poetry, here is classic that may just whet your appetite.

Being as we are located on the beautiful Rockaway Penninsula in Queens, NY we have a preference for the sea. Hope you enjoy.

The Moon Is Distant From The Sea,

    By Emily Elizabeth Dickinson

The moon is distant from the sea,
And yet with amber hands
She leads him, docile as a boy,
Along appointed sands.

He never misses a degree;
Obedient to her eye,
He comes just so far toward the town,
Just so far goes away.

Oh, Signor, thine the amber hand,
And mine the distant sea, —
Obedient to the least command
Thine eyes impose on me.
