    Thanks, Santiago. A very nice poem. It is as if you wrote it for myself. You've really given that much to me. I feel so much to owe and I'll keep your warm coat. (Report) Reply

    I offer you my love

    After Jimmy Santiago Baca



    Remember it is cold
    outside

    it is dog eat god
    outside

    solidarity is scorned
    outside

    life is lived for money
    outside

    some would eat their young
    outside

    sell their souls
    outside

    it’s every man for himself
    outside

    the offering, remember
    is inside (Report) Reply

    What a wonderful gift, something which is not wrapped but something that is a product of an open heart and mind. Thanks for your poem which is your gift to your beloved and your gift to life. (Report) Reply

    I will keep this peom somewhere safe; it is a treasure for my heart when the times are set to be hard and i shiver in the cold, when hunger gnawsme and I can't live the way i want. I love it. This is good, way too good. (Report) Reply

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
