My son, Simon Nightingale, is updating my web site.  On the Home page, I'll include a welcome, News of my current releases and this poem.  I'd like your input on the poem.  Is it good enough to be put on a web site?  I'm not much of a poet but since most everything I write has a paranormal element, this sort of came to me.

Do not trust what your ears hear

Or what your eyes may see
The taste on your lips may lie.
Here things are not what they seem.
So you may speak your mind clearly
But must be warned that
We may not understand or
Yet choose to reply….The Others

Thanks!

    I like your poem but was a little confused about The Others...Think it's a clever idea though

    Should I put something to clarify that the "Others" are speaking? Any ideas? Thanks everyone for the comments!

    I think people who come to the website for the first time need a reference as to who they are... It's a very cute idea

    Linda, I like the poem. I would leave out the may before see. I think it will be perfect for your website.

    Is the poem good enough? Most definitely, yes. It's beautiful.
