The most insipid, annoying and sickly-sweet poetry lines...


Recommended Posts

I can probably find a few quotes, but can you clarify:


By 'sickly sweet' do you mean the 'oh joyous day my life is wonderful, the world is great, and that sunset is pretty' OR the 'I'm in love and he/she is the most attractive, perfect person - if they leave, my life is over' style?

I did a search and found this site, if this is the kind of thing you're after.


"A special world for you and me

A special bond one cannot see

It wraps us up in its cocoon

And holds us fiercely in its womb.


Its fingers spread like fine spun gold

Gently nestling us to the fold

Like silken thread it holds us fast

Bonds like this are meant to last.


And though at times a thread may break

A new one forms in its wake

To bind us closer and keep us strong

In a special world, where we belong."


"My love, I have tried with all my being

to grasp a form comparable to thine own,

but nothing seems worthy;


I know now why Shakespeare could not

compare his love to a summer’s day.

It would be a crime to denounce the beauty

of such a creature as thee,

to simply cast away the precision

God had placed in forging you.


Each facet of your being

whether it physical or spiritual

is an ensnarement

from which there is no release.

But I do not wish release.

I wish to stay entrapped forever.

With you for all eternity.

Our hearts, always as one."

How about:


To the Ladies (Mary Chudleigh)


Wife and servant are the same,

But only differ in the name:

For when that fatal knot is tied,

Which nothing, nothing can divide,




Pied Beauty (Gerard Manley Hopkins)


Glory be to God for dappled things-

For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;

Heh, I think I will have a hilareous field day at some point soon, mangling the poetry. I will just need to keep myself in check, or my village idiot will end up with so many random replies that the player will never get that useful bit of info from him!!!
