If Only A Poem Could Explain


Maybe I'd love you as loud as thunder. Or as quiet as an afternoons rain.
I suppose I'd love you that way, If weather could explain.
I might love you as much as water is wet. Or as dry as the desert is any day.
I suppose I'd love you that way, If moisture could explain.
I could love you as much as the Rocky Mountains are high. Or as deep as the Grand Canyon is at base.
I suppose I'd love you that way, If either height or depth could explain.
I guess I'd love you like each loving word in every stanza, anyday.
I'm sure I'd love you that way.

    Laurette, this is beautiful. It has a perfect tempo, the words naturally fall into place and when I just read it out loud (In my mind the surest test of a poem) it was wonderful.
    Welcome to PH. I look forward to reading more of your work.

Far south the lift,
