RIC S. BASTASA


love for children


how can you say
you will love the children tomorrow?

you cannot, for when tomorrow comes
they're children no more
and they will just be like you
telling me again
to love the children tomorrow

love the children now
or you never love them at all

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
