Driving


It was the first time you drove your car by yourself
To collect me
And took me to the house where you had been staying
Our small paradise home
I did not much like it
As I doubted your ability to drive
You used to drive on the right hand side of the road
And the traffic was crazy here
I could not rest my head on your shoulder
Or hold your hands while you were driving
But I began to feel relieved
As you showed me your expertise
Besides, we had more privacy
No one could hear our conversation
Yes, sometimes people have to choose
Privacy or facility
Privacy means liberty
Facility is luxury
As Privacy and luxury at the same time are expensive, sometimes

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
