Warm Summer Evening


On a warm summer's evening
I found a reason
Without an evening rain
Splitting time, in a crisis

So many, they go
Without a sound
And I will reach
Then put back
Take my place

Remembering there is only the
To be forgotten
Even shiver if I do

Love was to be wasted
All to be, trusted
Sky clouds and blue
Kisses too

Until the goldenrod of August
Dry fields dusty and dry

I'm the white dove
Alone in a cage
Made of desire
Full of fire

Before a hurricane with no rain
What's my sin
Come again, oh Lord
Please come again

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
