I think it's great that people want to share poetry on this site. But Ankush, you should be a little more careful about quoting other authors: "Love wakes men, once a lifetime each..." is from Coventry Patmore. "It's only a paper moon/ Sailing over a cardboard sea..." is a song from the 20's, can't remember who wrote it. A number of others sound quite familiar, like that e.e. cummings redux with the Java references. It's just as good to post poems you like and say where you found them; you don't have to pretend you wrote them for others to enjoy them.

Good poem Ankush! Let me state one point though: One voice can speak with wisdom, One heart can know what's true, One life can make the difference, You see, it's up to YOU! It almost sounds like you're saying the truth is up to me. That's not what you mean, is it? I'm impressed with your writing. Peter

The term is 'plagiarism,' Ankush. Plagiarism is the act of representing the writing of someone else as your own. No one accused you of stealing "all" those poems except you yourself. [SERMON]It matters to people to like me who have spent years studying and enjoying these works. Those lines of poetry represent the best of a lifetime of effort, words that are still repeated decades, even centuries, after they were first written. I think an author deserves to be recognized when his or her work is used.[/SERMON] Just write your original stuff! There's plenty of people here who like what you're doing.

> who said that all the poems r mine....!! You did, by posting them with your name attached to them and failing to mention that someone else had written them.
