Ask how I love you
And the ocean answers
Those moonbeam dancers
With a wave.
Who could save
A starlit night
Or snowflake white
In one smile.
Ask how her love stretches
Like the nile,
With endless allure.
My forever cure
For the blues.
As lovebirds carry the news
From vermillion skies.
How a rainbow cries
To be warmed by the sun,
And cooled by the rain.
Then fade into blue again.
Like us and our hearts
Our nirvana,
That gymkhana of life
Riding the rollercoaster.
Then to call her my wife
How did we survive.
Only sweet rhyming bars
And haunting guitars
Kept us alive.
Cocooned when marooned
In last dreams,
Apart at the seams
Now woven in love.
Stars declare from above
That our souls do touch.
And now we clutch
As one
More miracles cupid has spun.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
