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.

And God Laughed - Viewed 5280 Times
February 17, 2007
The warmth of summer brought forth a tiny new child.
Parents planned for the future, then beamed with a smile.
And God Laughed...

Community service jobs or a ballerina I'm sure that I'll be.
Day dreamed plans from a child who's turned just only three.
And God Laughed...

Impressions brought forth by grade school and neighboring friends.
Perhaps I'll be the President or a famous star were my big plans.
And God Laughed...

I said to myself.. I am going to be a famous Rock-N-Roll star,
Traveling the world, sharing my music and I'll play a guitar.
And God Laughed...

My first feeling of love awakened the innocent heart of a teen.
Marriage plans were ahead for us, or so I continued to dream,
And God Laughed...

Colleges open the doors of learning for any career that was ahead.
Dreams of wealth and power were mine, as I laid there on my bed.
And God Laughed...

Married now, must start making plans for my own family someday.
Nothing can stop me now or would dare to even get in my way.
And God Laughed...
