Christine Natale

(August 9,1955 / Glen Ridge, New Jersey)

One Night


I thought that I was casual
And could give my kisses free -
That I could take him to my bed
As the shoreline takes the sea.

But now I sit and wait to hear
A phone that never rings,
And carry deep within my breast
A heart that never sings.

    I must say, you certainly have a niche lay within you. What words that lie there, i don't know...but what music you make when you are revealed.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
