Passage to Understanding


You spoke a noun to me
I spoke a verb to you
In the process simple words
became complex.

Said I to you
'Don't you see? '
Said you to me
'I see, do you? '

I spoke a verb to you
You spoke a noun to me
Somehow a smile ensued
words became less complex

Said we together
lets just laugh, maybe sing
the point is to be heard
and understood.

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.
