If home is not here
Where is it
If death brings us home
Then where are we when alive
If home is not here
Life means we are not at home
This makes no sense to me
None have returned with tales of home
None have come back once they are gone
Our home is here
Our work is here
Home building and home repair is here
We have one chance for home for home is here

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
