Avenue Of Love


(9/24/12)

Love is an avenue of which to explore
Go to any shop and open the door
Shops for every feeling known to man
Walk in to understand.

Shops for pain, sorrow, bitterness and heartbreak
Shop around - it's not to late.
Shops for joy, happiness, contentment, devotion
Shops for every emotion.

Stop in - look around - feel every emotion
That can be found.
Shop around ahead of time
To find out what awaits down the line.

But do not be fearful of pains
That may await
Take the chance - don't hesitate.

You can search every shop that's on this street
But there is nothing that can compete
To the love that you have deep inside
A love so beautiful that you can not hide

All these shops are in your soul
Open the doors and life unfolds.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
