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 Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
