Welcome to Four Lines! I have a goal I would like to write at least four lines of poetry or a haiku every day for the rest of my life. I'm excited about this challenge! Also, along with my daily poem, I will be reading at least four lines of another author's poetry. I'll try to include that here also. So I'm thinking - how difficult can it be to read and then write one poem a day? We will see! - Claudia

It's October and my beloved tulip tree
is the color of apricots and daffodils,
of orange juice, pumpkins, bundled wheat,
school pencils and ripened yellow tomatoes.
She is the daughter of the sun.


Four lines by another author,
Robert Frost

Snow falling and night falling, fast, oh, fast
In a field I looked into going past,
And the ground almost covered smooth in snow,
But a few weeds and stubble showing last.
