The Midnight of Summer


Summer was always such a happy time
til now.

I loved you like cereal loves milk,
til now.

I moved as close to you as a fence to a yard
til now.

But summer can't be sunny all the time,
not now.

You left me behind you, never to hold you close,
not now.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
