Judy K. When We Were Very Young


You were lost,
An elfin sprite;
Sadly tossed,
You''d spend the night;

I gave you my bed,
I took the couch;
I gave you pajamas
You stood a mouse.

Standing in my living room
Only wearing pajama tops;
I could not add to your doom,
As a seducer, I a flop.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
