Limitations


I can take your anger,
and walk away the while
Still smiling, in measured flight
I can walk that weightless mile

And when the curtains draw again
and sunshine lights the room
Well then, it's easy. Even
Leaving me marooned as you so often do.

I can take your words
And throw them at a wall and watch them break
And wait to gather up those letters
For new words or thoughts to make

I can do that. But not your disappointment. Not that.

I can swim luxurious in your laughter
Ringing as it does against the roof
Or ride alone into the night
When you turn away, aloof

And your worry which can soften
Nature's protective hands
As she draws near with branch and birdsong
While you watch the falling sands

Against a barrage of your elements
I can rise full height, push back
And make a dam to stop the rampage
With the confidence you gave me - I can do that.

But never your disappointment. Not that.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
