And A Softness Came


And a softness came from her touch
And I set aside my old tragedies
And let the touch fill me
Full to the bone

Now what comes next
Do I write about
How that touch touched me
As none ever had

But that has been written
Before and often
By much better poets
Than this cowboy

Or do I write about
How I miss that touch
But to what purpose
To wallow in self pity

I could write about
How I fell in love with the touch
How love made a fool of me
But I have not the strength

How about this
Her touch came to me
And it lingers still
At least I have that

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
