  • A plethora of verb variations (verbals!)

  • Writing with strong verbs


We wear the mask
We Wear the Mask

We wear the mask that grins and lies,

It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,--

This debt we pay to human guile;

With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,

And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be overwise,

In counting all our tears and sighs?

Nay, let them only see us, while

We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries

To thee from tortured souls arise.

We sing, but oh the clay is vile

Beneath our feet, and long the mile;

But let the world dream otherwise,

We wear the mask!

Paul Laurence Dunbar


We wear the mask1
We Wear the Mask

We wear the mask that grins and lies,

It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,--

This debt we pay to human guile;

With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,

And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be overwise,

In counting all our tears and sighs?

Nay, let them only see us, while

We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries

To thee from tortured souls arise.

We sing, but oh the clay is vile

Beneath our feet, and long the mile;

But let the world dream otherwise,

We wear the mask!

Paul Laurence Dunbar

Immortal longings by robert pinsky
Immortal Longingsby Robert Pinsky

Inside the silver body,Slowing as it banks through veils of cloud,We float separately in our seatsLike the cells or atoms of oneCreature, needsAnd states of a shuddering god.Under him, a thirsty brilliance.Pulsing or steady,The fixed lights of the cityAnd the flood of carlights, coursingThrough the grid: Delivery,Arrival, Departure. Whim. EnteringAnd entered. TouchingAnd touched: downThe lit boulevards, over the bridgesAnd the river like an arm of night.Book, cigarette. Bathroom.Thirst. Some of us are asleep.We tilt, roaringOver the glitteringZodiac of intentions.
