The Scale


Both the good and the bad
You engender unevenly
From the right and left sides
Of your heart
When set on a judicious scale
Stir my creativity
Each delivering to me
An original ornamental piece to espouse
As you turn on their switches alternately
Thus making you my best motivator

Therefore, at both your best and worst moments
You remain the best food for my brain
And so will I turn a blind eye whenever you err
Because you have kept the balance tilted
To the right always
With a candle perpetually lit
To illuminate the dark recesses of your left
So I can see clearly
To guard against stumbling on pricks.

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.
