Lamentation of a Poor Lover

Every other one wishes you were theirs,
But me alone you belong to, for years.
They want to love you on their own best ways
To lay you on their bed of Roses, to hurt you with love, care and kiss.

But you are mine alone
please my love,
Lie on my poor ragged mat,
They wish you were theirs, but you belong to me.
O, Poor love i have to give,
But strong standing, i will forever be,
Yes, their diamonds could forever gleam,
Like the star in your nights and in my dreams,
But my love for you would forever be.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
