IF I AM JUST A THOUGHT


If I am a song,
Thank you for singing me.

If I am only refrain,
Thank you for remembering me.

If I am the morning’s paper,
Thank you for leafing through.

If I am a book,
Thank you for reading me.

If I am a letter on your doorstep,
Thank you for not moving away yet.

If I am at your place as I was lost
Thank you for returning me to myself.

If I am a postcard
Thank you for writing and sending me.

If I am a written letter,
Thank you for learning me.

If I am a word that was said,
Thank you for hearing me.


If I am an accidental look,
Thank you for seeing me.

If I am just a thought,
Thank you for understanding me.

    If I'm a letter you never really read

    do let me lie on a broken stair
    I'll sound no victory and no defeat
    I'll fold no sides to a memo cry
    I'll name no address bear no stamp no post
    I'll rustle whimper whisper for a wind beloved
    to take me away to a no land host

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
