What is an Occasional Verse
An Occasional Verse is Poetry for the Everyday Poet. A website devoted to enabling poets easy access to publishing their occasional verse, poetry collections, poems, lyrics, odes, songs and sonnets. Starting with the ability to post their own work on and even going as far as starting your own poetry website.

We are still working to make An Occasional Verse easy to use but as you can now easily register and begin uploading your own poetry. The collections option is also now working. When you log in you will have the ability to Add a Collection. Then when you go to upload your Poems you can pick from your collections.

As of 04/21/2005 you can't search or list based on the Category but we are working on that also. We appreciate your patience while we make this the best poetry website available on the web.

We look forward to your comments and feedback.

With No Place Yet To Go - Viewed 1759 Times
David Devaney
April 28, 2009
I’ve lost all hope in life itself
And live through emptiness
Inside out and upside down
I need a fond caress
Someone to love me as I am
And too as I do change
To help me find a better path
And life now rearrange
I need someone to touch my soul
My energy my dream
And help to brighten every day
Then end this lonely scheme
I hope to find her in my time
Before my hours fade
Tasting touching who she is
And all her thoughts invade
I’ve wandered aimless much too long
With no place yet to go
Perhaps in dreams she will appear
And make life better flow
So now I say a special prayer
Thanksgivings for true love
In hopes that God will hear my cry
With blessings from above
A thimble full of angel dust
To sparkle each new day
And too a woman full with dreams
To with me ever stay

So Mote It Be
