Go To Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg is the oldest information provider on the Internet, having started the first source of general information on the World Wide Web by posting the United States Declaration of Independence back in 1971. Can you believe the web is that many years old! Well, so are we.

Our Collection of E-texts is mainly about Literature, so don't be surprised if it will be hard to find books on other subjects; there are some, but they are a minority.

All of our books are in the Public Domain in the United States, unless a copyright notice is included. This means that they are free and you are welcome to download and use them under the terms included in the Project Gutenberg Header included in all of our Etexts.

Please take a look at the important information in this Header; Copyright laws are being revised all over the world (and are often specific to each country), therefore be sure to check the Copyright laws for your country before downloading and using our books!

Our Etexts are usually created from multiple editions, all of which are in the Public Domain unless otherwise indicated. Therefore, we do NOT keep these books in compliance with any particular paper edition, usually the opposite.

Project Gutenberg's editions have been listed in library catalogs on a regular basis for quite some time. You can look up citations on a system such as OCLC (Online Computer Library Center), and our books appear as their own editions. In some cases our editions are listed as the only edition in existence.

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer’s Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we’ve known;
Each writer’s block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It’s how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don’t plant your poem on the page
As though you’re hanging drapes;
It’s shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their “themes.”

Double Vision
A writer’s life is paradox,
It’s more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you’ll never quit.

It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem’s through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
