Anticipation


In hope you open an envelope;
A telephone call can change your day.
A fresh e mail in your inbox
Can mean love is only a click away.

    Beautiful contemporary writing. Speed of art is comparing with the speediest metropolitan life-styles. Simply 3 minutes in hand to love. Simply 6 seconds to like you, and other seconds to propose and to sleep with. So love is at a clicks away. Fantastic. Real irony peeps through the lines. MUCH...MUCH YOU HAVE DONE POET...... Perhaps it is the classic of this time. Rat-race, back-bite behind.....yet love just a click......if necessary that will be purchased. Well-written big idea, but the readers will translate it as their own. Excellent.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
