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.

My Friend God - Viewed 3263 Times
David Devaney
January 28, 2008
I spoke with my friend God last night
About this life we’ve shared
He told me that though life’s been tough
I need not be despaired
He understands just how I feel
And all that I must learn
And that I do not stand alone
When for his love I yearn
He counseled me then did explain
About humanity
And helped me then to recognize
The strength of liberty
The freedom that I have to choose
No matter right or wrong
And that there is so much to life
That truly makes me strong
I told him of those crazy things
That I was prone to do
And he replied he knew them all
Before they passed me through
I said that others called them sins
Which lead to mans disgrace
To comfort me he did reveal
My life and every trace
He then explained that loving him
Was hardest for each soul
But if we kept him in our heart
We’d reach a special goal
That loving him is easiest
By loving those we know
Our friends and too our family
Do help love constant flow
And when we spoke of my mistakes
He everyone forgave
So I could love him even more
And for his friendship crave
He shared examples with me then
Of those who came his way
Saints and sinners every one
Whose lives he did display
And last and most importantly
He took me by the hand
And told me through eternity
He would beside me stand
