' ANTICIPATION


I hold within my trembling hand
This gift
So rare, so contraband -
I dare not take it lightly, 'though
I smile
To think it came from you;

How should I take the wrapping off
This gift?
With slow and careful hand,
Or quickly rip the wrap to shreds -
Oh, dear!
I simply cannot wait

To peel the layers one by one...........
Oh, my!
The colors please my eye,
And I just simply can't believe
My luck -
You gave this gift to me!

So precious and so wonderful,
My stars!
I am a lucky girl
To think that you would trust me with
This key -
This key that might unlock

The mystery of all you are -
The heart,
The soul you so protect,
You humble, and you honor me
My friend.......................
Can't wait to turn the key!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
