(1997) Glass Heart


Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
do you fear to fall
to break forever?

Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
do you fear the hammer
that will break you forever?

Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
do you dread the cold
that could break you forever?

Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
together we'll face the fear
and break forever....

    I used to dread the cold that would break me forever... now? ... I simply let what is wash over me.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
