Love's a game


Love's a game,
of hide and seek,
now you see me,
now you don't.

Love's a game,
of peek-a-boo,
here one minute,
gone the next.

Love's a game,
of tag,
one minute you're IT,
the next you're not.

Love's a game,
of hopscotch,
hopping from one square,
to the next.

Love's a game,
of ring-o-rosies,
atishoo, atishoo,
you always fall down.

Love's a game,
of cat's cradle,
eventually the ball
of string gets tangled.

Love's a game,
of double dutch,
you skip one rope only,
to get caught in the other.

Love's a game,
of cops and robbers,
one steals aheart,
the other catches them.

Love's a game,
of duck duck goose,
there is always
an odd one out.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
