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.

If in each moment of our hearts
New lifetimes we could share
I’d bring to you a universe
With love beyond compare
We’d ride the “Milky Way” through time
And watch new rainbows form
Then capture every fantasy
With love to keep us warm
We’d tiptoe into Paradise
But only stay a while
For beauty such as yours is rare
And would this world beguile
We’d listen to each lullaby
That morning birds do sing
Then capture sunbeams with our thoughts
As they new hopes did bring
We’d tickle every fantasy
Bring laughter to each day
And on each star that coursed the sky
We would our dreams display
We’d perfume every garden
With fragrance uncompared
And let the world partake of love
That truly must be shared
We’d never feel the darkness
That often comes with time
And only know sweet passion rare
So gentle and sublime
We’d never look for diamonds
Nor jewels of any ilk
For in the loveliness you are
We’d find most precious silk
Woven into happiness
True love and dreams come true
Then every heart that touched your own
Would find each day brand new
And every dawn would sparkle green
With faith and hope and love
Sharing life’s eternity
With angels from above
