Porcelain heart

My heart is china made
Poor porcelain that easy breaks
With both my hands so crystal clean
Came I to the pagoda of love
And gave to it all my heart
I never knew with all my words
The river of love so artfully flows
You never taste with both your legs
In its art weaved in wile
Lungs and lips are laced in lies
Fed by heart old in tricks
Now I know with all my heart
The river of love so artfully flows
You never taste with both your legs
But one love is same as another
For fools like me.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
