Let Us Desire Anew


I cannot desire you
As I did thirty years ago
When you were in your spring.
Still I’m the best bet you can count on
As others around you
Are seeing you in your falls.
Me alone you can tempt
For my memory of your green spring.
I alone can thrill you
With my memory of your spring image.
Let us desire anew
And explore the missed paradise

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
