Love Eludes


Did you know?
I know that
You know
But I know that
You do not know
Knowing is not enough
Love eludes
If you do not feel,
No matter what
You know.
You must show.
Death is slow
But sure to come
Love embraces death
Or death does love
To become
One in body and soul
Which is first
I'll never know.
And I know
Even if I do not know
Love eludes or not
You'll never show.

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.
