Waiting On The Corner


I'll meet you on the corner,
East of Love and Happiness;
I'm waiting there, so don't be late,
I'm wearing your favorite dress

I can't wait 'til you arrive,
I have, oh, so much to say;
Like how you mean the world to me,
And how you brighten my day

If sadness should take a hold,
I'll be with you through it all;
I'll never turn away from you,
I'll be there if you should call

I hear footsteps on the walk,
Oh, I recognize that pace;
And now you're here, right next to me,
I close my eyes to see your face

I see you smile and touch my hair,
Then you place your hand in mine;
We start to walk - I don't ask where,
Why question something so divine!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
