A Hoedown Love


In weakness - I love you.
And I hope to hold you.
I mean - I mean - I want to hold you…
To hold you - time after time,
Time after time all, all over—again…

I want to sleep in the boulders
Of your strong - shoulders
And wave my heart - over the moon,
Oh, I want to love you…
Till the sun sinks and rise in tribune
To the harvest moon
When I keep you for-
Keeps in mortal weakness…

In weakness - I love you.
And I hope mean hold you.
I mean - I mean - I want to hold you…
To hold you - time after time,
Time after time all, all over—again…

Oh chain us together
With a bit and bridle leather
Cause although he’s wild
We belong together
Oh he’s rouge a bad tempered lover
But with groundwork
With the right conditioned responses
I’ll tame; the spirit of the wind.

In weakness - I love him.
And I hope to hold him.
I mean - I mean - I want to marry him…
To hold him - time after time, after-time
Time after time, forever again…
For a hoedown, rodeo time - my friend.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
