Three Magic Words And Love Go Haywire

I build an edifice of hope,
furnished with details
of art and love;
ready to open the
door for the comer,
I desire most.

It drizzles from the morn.
Non-stop. Monotonous.
I'm awaiting the coveted
comer, I desire most.

In the eve, she comes
in the form of a voice.
And puffs a storm.
And crumbles the edifice
of hope, labour and love.
Drizzle turns into downpour.
That's the end of the wait
for the elusive comer,
I desire most.

It drizzles from the morn;
Non-stop. Monotonous.
I am not awaiting the mystery
comer, I desire most.
But at noon, she comes
in the form of a voice,
utters three magic words.
And my swampy, tattered
world begins to revive.

Again I wait for the coveted
comer, I desire most.

Today you look simple and sweet.
For me, simply irresistible.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
