Old Man and Young Bride


Do you marry me?
Do you know I am old?
I can’t love you all the way I wish
I can’t give you all the pleasures
A young man can give you
Satisfy the desires you yearn to!
Do you love me?
Do I deserve?
I can’t say “no” to you
You will be my wife
You will be my love
I will cherish you
More than I can describe to you
You will be the jewel of my heart
I will be your man
You will be my woman

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
