- A thief's tale - Chapter 6"Hmmm~" The humming of her mother made Noah stir. She rolled her head and saw the older woman opening the curtains. Brown hair in two braids that rested on her shoulders, her green eyes full of thought, a soft smile on her face as she glanced at her daughter.
"So she finally wakes up, huuuh?" Noah squeaked as something was thrown at her. "I got you a candy bag," Her mother paused.
"Bum said you fell asleep while she was teaching... again."
She stopped, and straightened her dress. "But she told me over the phone that you did well on your math test! Good, now.." She patted her daughter's belly. "It's 9 AM. Time to help your dad with the breakfast." A groan escaped from Noah's lips as she rised from her bed, her hair all over the place and a line of drool on the side of her cheek. She scratched her head. "Okay, okaaay."

You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
