Poem and Poet


Love the poem but not the poet
keep your candor in check, so rancor not rendered
love the metaphors, images of his love
but don't convert it into loving you
for his poetic love is simply metaphoric
while he tries to make true love real
to him love is the air he breathes
which might stealthily, on you then back to him, seethe
if one seeks to find to possess
such a duress his tender soul would definitely be sorely pressed
love his poems but not to an excess
and please stop at its last sentence,
his last soul breath

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
