Puppy and kitten


I had been with a kitten,
With whose love I was smitten.
Warmth wafted us between.
She left after a good innings.

I had been with a puppy,
In whose company too I was happy.
Currents flowed between us.
I left her in the beginning of the innings.

One day I had a vivid dream,
Wherein came the puppy before my avid eyes,
Wagging, her head under my cares.
The puppy, not the kitten, I rules.

The one who is in your stream
will only come in your dream.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
