Treasure Island

Poetry is For Lovers


Poetry is for lovers like you and me
who marvel at the artistry of the pen
The skill of the verses that rhyme
And the mystery in-between the lines

Poetry is for lovers
This is true
For lovers like me and you
And those who are not afraid to bare their soul
And spill with careful words
Their heart's content

For those who dream of nature scenes
Flower beds and wild green grasses
Moon-lit skies, quiet walks
And goodnight kisses

Poetry is for lovers
If it is not so
Then why do lovers cling
To poetry things?

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
