CURSED IS LOVE FOR YOUR SAKE


So it was said of the
Passing away of our
Love songs, I never knew
It was all but shadows

And shalttered dreams.I
Forfeit my breath for
It, when I wept with tears
And thoughts of love for

You.I gave you my heart,
Yet you fled, and flirt
With what is min, leaving
Me perplexed, and helpless.

Now I cursed love for your
Sake, to save my heart, and
The tongue which once
Cherished, and cheered

Your names, now spiting
On ït, I cursed love
This very day for your
Sake

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
