What We Love


What we love is as mutable and uncertain as any other reality
The passing face - life passing - a smile passing by-
What does it signify- mean - imply

Just the turning of a head -the lifting of a hand
The cadence somewhere of something lost in times mist

A childhood bedtime kiss

Looks from eyes and words from lips
Laughter that triumphed and laughter that enraged
Laughter softened on the rim of enchantment

Loving now things past despised -hated - neglected

Rejected

When a little farther along lifting as morning fog-just a bit beneath
We see what was never seen before - the beauty of it all
Grandeur of something eternal that will not diverge

It is all a mystery and a guess
Circulating blood and hearts quest

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
