A Copious Amount Of Love


A copious amount of love is all I need
I’m a tad stronger than a climbing rose
But I need sunlight to grow
I need compassion to breathe…

I need empathy in every touch
A copious amount of love
To make my pergola—arch!
A dove-white wing…

Oh I need a summer house!
To shelter me from all my tears,
A copious amount of love
Warm as the sun, up above…

A copious amount of love is all I need…
A fire sign to my water!
To disguise the night times horror
All I need is your love.

For you to gather these silkweeds
And I’ll behold you my golden lotus…
In every midnight hour
We’ll bloom, animated as owl-wings,
Glowing in the dark - together
Hooting, hooting, love forever…

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
