Not since I was a wee schoolboy. It might not be a poem, but it is Poe-try.


Nothing follows.

The turtle slipper. It's all about the turtle slipper for me. Brilliant.

Lol, no, it is just an embellishment. I saw someone else do it and thought it was pretty creative.

Clever and amusing, but "An apple a day..." etc. is more of a proverb that happens to rhyme than a poem.

It could also be considered a symbol in this context, not a letter.

Re: Fire and Ice - Robert Frost



I'm not too familiar with the poem, I mean I just read it now...is the globe image fairly common with this poem? I just find it amazing that everyone that picked this poem went for the same thematic design. This is awesome, BTW!

I think it's just the dead obvious visual interpretation.. and that's coming from one of the guys that used it.

That being said, this one wins far and away for implementation. Beautiful!

Ha! It still gets an "I'd want one" because I still want one, even if it's not a poem.

Yeah, I went ahead and uploaded it anyway, I never expected to place, I just like learning and practicing with some direction. I do a lot of web design, but am not much of an artist.

I thought this was poetry, but I might be wrong.

I really like the detail, but it might play better on white or gray so it doesn't end so sharply on the edges.

Re: I CARRY YOUR HEART WITH ME



[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
BY E. E. CUMMINGS
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

This is a thing of beauty. I only wish you could have a little Elvish or something of the Silmarils to really bring it home. I'd hang this on my wall.

Simply gorgeous visual interpretation of Frost! Game of Thrones unintentional reference is a bonus.

Re: The Sloth by Theodore Roethke



The Sloth by Theodore Roethke
In moving-slow he has no Peer.
You ask him something in his Ear,
He thinks about it for a Year;

And, then, before he says a Word
There, upside down (unlike a Bird),
He will assume that you have Heard--

A most Ex-as-per-at-ing Lug.
But should you call his manner Smug,
He'll sigh and give his Branch a Hug;

Then off again to Sleep he goes,
Still swaying gently by his Toes,
And you just know he knows he knows.

It's a short story, though, not a prose poem.

Re: The Writer



It's shirts like these that make me wish Woot didn't have the printing constraints it does. This would look really cool reworked to be oversized and running along the bottom of the shirt.

Still got my vote!
