Just because


Just because
The sun was so bright today,
And pearls of fresh rain still roll over the window…
And just because

And breakfast scents still saturate my soul…
And just because

Just because I kept saying it for so many years

Just because it happens to be true,
And just because I felt like...

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
