Feast


Upon life's table
I've been fed scraps
So little to devour
Almost starving to death
Longing for abundant meals
When I sat upon the table of my lover
I found barely more
Crumbs and scraps
Still ravenous
I ran from his table
I was looking for nourishment
My stomach howling
Hungrier than before
Then I found
A large table
Lined with meats
Jellies
Fruits
Candies
Cakes
Jams
Stews
Pies
A marvelous feast
It was the table of my father and my brother
They prepared this banquet for me
Delighted
I feasted
Devouring every bite
I feasted forever
Never hungry again
Thankful for this divine feast
I shall never roam again

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,
