Riff on Woman of Poems A Lofty Man of Intellect


And I thought you loved me for my mind!
The sweetest fruit is not the rind;
That's the reason I went to college;
I've packed my mind with lofty knowledge;
And now you say that I'm affected,
It's not a fault that I've detected;
A man is more than just a body,
Unless of course you want John Gotti.

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
