Hope Is Still There


Hope the best.
Hope is still there
In my body-nest.

It is hope,
For which I am living
It is not,
Hope against hope.

Hope the best.
One who is,
The best
Can only keep hope.

Hope is only hope
If you are
Not in a mood to hope.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.
