How I Am


You are my beloved,
And you have seen me,
Will you please tell me,
How I am?

She Smiled and embraced me,
She kissed my cheeks,
She kissed my lips,
But didn't reply.

You are my friend,
And you know me,
Will you please tell me,
How I am?

She wrote and replied,
You are like my father,
And a friend indeed,
I love, I respect and I like you.

You are my admirer,
You have read my poems,
Will you please tell me,
How I am?

You are a poet, very good,
Never lack a topic,
Always some thing new,
I love to read.

You are my critic,
You, too, know me,
Will you please tell me,
How I am?

I am your true friend,
You address me a teacher,
I am working with you,
To improve your poetry.

You are my enemy,
Police dog for me,
Will you please tell me,
How I am?

You are a rag-man,
Reproducing ugly thoughts,
I don't need you,
Beware of the dog.

You are my God,
You know me very well,
Will you please tell me,
How I am?

I gave you beloved, friends and admirers,
Teachers as well,
Is something else?
Haven't been replied!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
