Purity Of A Golden Heart


I don't suspect the purity of gold
which makes my heart but lastly
a heart is made up of no gold
but of bundle of muscles
nerves, veins, emotions
et cetera,
et cetera.

Heart is heart and gold is gold.
What I come to know lastly
seems you knew from the beginning!
One is not worth exchanging for other.
Want gold you need not to
stop for a heart
but to go ahead for pure gold.

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,
