Campbells Chicken Soup

I ain't quite ready yet!
To stand in the dark recess of the cupboard
As unrequested
Out of date
Campbells..... chicken soup

My heart still listens
My stomach
Still loops the loop
When you are around

Yet still
I just stand
Unemployed by loves relish
So as a pitiful dog
I'll lay in my basket
And just embellish

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
