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.

A Woman of Intrigue - Viewed 8880 Times
David Devaney
August 23, 2003
If I were younger I’d pursue
a woman of intrigue.
I’d do whatever it would take
to join her special league.

Where happiness it does abound
neath every single star.
And skies they are forever blue
no matter near nor far.

Her smile, it would radiate
as does the morning sun.
And life becomes a special place
for it has now begun.

I’d walk with her along the path
that leads into each heart.
Hold her tight and whisper words
to help her joy to start.

And she would walk with special grace
a step above the earth.
If only she could know my heart
for me would come rebirth.

A mentor, confidante and guide
this woman I’d call friend.
If she could touch me with her smile
my life will never end.
