No Love in Moscow


I came here looking for love
But love came here not looking for me...

Snow,
Scare-crow,
Moscow!

Crowd that crusts goose-bumps of loneliness,
Life that births death...

Snow...

I came here looking for love
Like a baby yearning for breast-milk.

I came...
Scare-crow looking for me
And if I don't find that cherry
Death will birth me snow-brushed!

But if I don't find love's wind
What will I ever find?
If there is no love in Moscow
Then what will I ever know?

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
