Treasure Island

Tracy Scheepers

(14 December 1977 / South Africa)

Love is....

Love is love, as love is love
Love is what? Love simply is love
As the moon does glow so I do love
Ask what I do and my answer is love

Oh how silly of me to love, love, love
Of each and all I think the world of
A trap I have set for myself you say
At first thought I concur and tell all to stay away

Henceforth I begin to ponder and wonder
Why I set myself up for yet another blunder
With these expectations of love in return
I believe my heart cindered and my stomach turns

A thunderous cloud within my mind has burst
A refreshing downpour whereby I feel less cursed
I wonder and ponder and ponder and wonder
A mind enlightened by a flood of answers

These answers are clear, answers so pure
My heart, my soul I believe has found a cure
To those who do not love, I love you so
You feed me knowledge so that I can grow

To all who do not love, to all who judge
I love you! Love you and hold no grudge
You unknowingly teach me to love love love!
Oh how I do love this little mystery called love!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
