Live With Agreements


Today, the hours will watch
the minutes play tic,
and the seconds play toc.

Today, patience will dance,
with good intention
to a song with end.

Today, morals will sit up straight,
center their reasons
to impress our thinking.

Today, depression will walk in public,
pickpocket innocence,
side step question.

Today, regret will plant reminders,
water adolescent fear,
sprout anger.

Tonight, I will sleep with tic and toc,
let patience rest, and morals talk.

Tonight depression will be generous,
tomorrow, Ill ask for lenience.

Live with agreements.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
