A Smidgen


A smidgen of Love was dancing by
And said, Hello do I know you?
Another smidgen replied, My name is Pain
How do you do?
I’m doing fine, the smidgen said
As long as you keep your distance
The smidgen said, I remember you
I crossed your path one instance
The smidgen of love danced on by
And again said, Hello do I know you?
Another smidgen replied, My name is Hate
How do you do?
I’m doing fine the smidgen said
As long as you stay away
The smidgen said, I remember you
I gave you thoughts you can’t abate
The smidgen of love danced on by
And again said, Hello do I know you?
Another smidgen replied, My name is Forgiveness
How do you do?
I’m doing fine the smidgen said
You are Beautiful, would you like a dance
The smidgen said, What a pleasure to meet
I never knew I’d get the chance
And the smidgens danced away

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
