Grey Hair II


My grey hair will tell you my age,
My great love will tell you my muse,
My great act will tell you my strength,
Living in the land of joy and peace;
But, a light came down from heaven to teach me.
My grey hair will tell you my age,
But, you are now drinking a camel's milk in the desert;
And, what do you expect to becomne in the near future?

Love!
Like a floating player with a life style to make a difference!
Sweet love!
In the land of peace;
But, we still have the unregistered children of Africa over here! !
However, nature's art is by an inference.

Love!
Poetry is you and me;
But, in the greatest time of trouble,
Life is real and love is better than you think.

My grey hiar will tell you my age,
My great love will tell you my muse! !
To scream and to cry in your pains because of your wounds;
But, i will always care for you.

Love!
Like the ice cream;
Scream, cream! !
But, my grey hiar will tell yoi my age;
And, i am in love with you.

To scream and cry for love!
To scream and cry for care1
To scream and cry for more!
To scream and cry for a lost one;
And like a father's care when the grey hair starts,
But, we have to learn from our mistakes in this life always.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
