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.

So often I’ve forgotten
Just what it means to pray
And how to help those most in need
Who put love on display
I’ve forgotten what it means to care
For those we can’t forget
Allowed my actions to be changed
By things I would neglect
I’ve forgotten what it is to give
Expecting nothing back
And lost the pathway to the Lord
Though parallel the track
I’ve forgotten what it means to be
Much better than I should
And wish that I might not forget
The truly common good
I’ve forgotten just how love does feel
When it is freely shared
And just how God reveals to me
A love that’s uncompared
I’ve forgotten too those many things
I wanted to forget
For they did bring anxiety
Which I could not neglect
Then last and most importantly
I’ve forgotten how to live
Since I forgot those joyful words
That do my life forgive
