On The Cross-Road


Somewhere in the middle
A thought flashed, with which I could meddle
‘Since no cue was forth-coming,
I’d just hit the ground and be running’

You, having found you on a cross-road
To make a choice can be to you, a hell of load
North or South, East or West
You never know which is best

Even harder it is, making a choice
When each seems to appeal with more voice
But there must be a road not taken; at least three
Tragically or not, only one is free

But still caught out in the in-betwixt
The situation must be remedied, fixed
Wait no longer, and for nothing fickle!
Your Heart can solve the riddle

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
