In Class in Rome

In Class in Rome
By Romulus

Something of the Renaissance
Is on that page, inside this book.
Such lovely, lifelike lines, you see?
You’d like it if you’d only look.

Across the flowing Tiber
Begins to swing a booming bell
As if to say; “Here is the spot
Where wept the painter, Raphael.”

The voice drones on
I think to yell:
Why don’t you show
Instead of tell!

Can we say "puerile and singsong", my dear Canuck? :)

Oh come on Donna there's no need to be so hard on the boy... What we are dealing with here is a young man's attempt to emulate Dr. Seuss...and to say such things as "puerile" and "singsong", he might give up and never write again..............hhhmmmmm

Wait a minute...are you saying that rhyming "yell" with "tell" is puerile and singsong? You clearly don't have any artistic or poetic taste. Go back to school. It'll do you good.

Which, clearly, would be a tragedy along the lines of Mount Vesuvius, world hunger, or the Beatles breaking up. :)

But not quite as sad as Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. :(

I thought it was cute, and not at all puerile and singsong.

Your right Donna. And it would also not be as sad as TomKat....nothing is as sad as TomKat! :-)

Oh, Romulus...

[stares off into a void, looking deep in thought...]

Sorry... I spaced out. I meant to say that your poetry caused great thoughts within my brain, deep sweeling felings within my heart. Oh, I wish I had words...

But I'm not a poet,
And I think you know it.

You're a darned sight more talented a poet than this Canadian hack. :)
