Master And King


My shepherd
At the foot of the hill
I call
Your strong hands
Let me see
Though I stumble
I shall not fall

I cannot look at you
Like the sun
Your eyes blaze
At your feet
I found my mouth
Before I kiss
My eyes gaze

My thirst is quenched
Your blood I drink
Your body
More than food
For me

You are Master
You are King
Do not shed your blood
Again for me

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
