Abiku


Coming and going many times
Delight me not or my kindred
Missions incomplete, frustrations, send me
Yet I have to convey it

The ties on my waist and neck
The very reason for which I go
Albeit to regain strength to afflict
As your love means me no a thing

Let me stay and play
Allow me to be with you
Look away from me
And I riches will unleash

I hurt not except duty bade me
Hates, not on my way
When you cast no strings on me
And when I am hot, merry

The marks and the cuts
The libations and the gifts
Delight me not or my kindred
I am destined, and destiny waste not

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
