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

We are still working to make An Occasional Verse easy to use. 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.

A little south of where the pass,
two islands does divide.
Down one hill and up the next,
there’s a view that’s long and wide.
An old white table in the grass,
Drive Thru Expresso stand.
The San Juan Islands to the west,
There’s beauty in this land.
A driftwood log of sailfish form
does beckon one and all.
The pine trees leaning from the wind,
to north and east they fall.
Single engine private planes
rising overhead.
Across the cloudless sky they soar,
through sunsets amber red.
Boats upon the emerald green
trolling Puget Sound.
Deception Pass just to the north
does many hearts astound.
Vancouver, he discovered it,
and named it Whidbey isle.
Its beauty is beyond compare,
its fragrance does beguile.
So if you venture north and west
then south do “Twenty” take.
Just beyond Deception Bridge
your heart a friend will make.
Do stop here for a moments rest,
a cup of chocolate brew.
And you will find time does stand still
and dreams can all come true.

I talk a lot
But I always keep secretes
I love all my friends equally
But my best friend hates me
One thing you tell me
Goes around
But a friend you once trusted
Is now someone you blame
I don't understand
When I am always there for you
We do ever thing together
I love you
But you blame me
The rummer was cruel
You lost many friends
You lost many friends
You got grounded
You blame me
I would never do anything to hurt you
You are my best friend
And I love you!
