truth

By Gwendolyn Brooks

And if sun comes

How shall we greet him?

Shall we not dread him,

Shall we not fear him . . .

Truth Serum

By Naomi Shihab Nye

We made it from the ground-up corn in the old back pasture.
Pinched a scent of night jasmine billowing off the fence,   
popped it right in. . . .

The Tyger

By William Blake

Tyger Tyger, burning bright, 
In the forests of the night; 
What immortal hand or eye,  . . .
