I Never Wanted To Be So Pale


God is God
God is God
God is God

I am I
I am I
I am I

Nothing was Nothing
Nothing was Nothing
Nothing was Nothing

Anything was Everything
Anything was Everything
Anything was Everything

I never wanted to be pale
Skin like the lace on a wedding veil
I never wanted to fail
At being such an open book for sale

God is God
You are You
I am I
We Are Us

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
