One Who has Lost All Three.

A poet was interviewed,
Of his latest collections.
Had his views well-expressed
Of his intimate reflections.

When asked of future plans,
Replied, “No plans for future,
As today is full of regrets;
Of yesterdays,
And of misgivings
Of unborn tomorrows”

Why should one plan
When all three is lost!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
