(1990 - wish it'll be soon / Urmia)

In the Hot Desert

In the hot desert
I was naked and was burning by sun,
Squatting upon the ground,
I held my heart in my hands,
And ate of it.
A bestial creature came toward me,
And said, “Is it good friend? ”
“It is bitter - Bitter” I said;
“But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart.” I continued.
Then the creature left me
Giving no drop of water.

    The world is a desert and if you find any drop of water it is salty and makes you to drink more and more but your thirst will not fade away. Any way I drank your bitter poem and I want MORE. (Report) Reply

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
