POEM OF THE DAY
"Why Do I Love" You, Sir?

480

"Why do I love" You, Sir?
Because—
The Wind does not require the Grass
To answer—Wherefore when He pass
She cannot keep Her place.

Because He knows—and
Do not You—
And We know not—
Enough for Us
The Wisdom it be so—

The Lightning—never asked an Eye
Wherefore it shut—when He was by—
Because He knows it cannot speak—
And reasons not contained—
—Of Talk—
There be—preferred by Daintier Folk—

The Sunrise—Sire—compelleth Me—
Because He's Sunrise—and I see—
Therefore—Then—
I love Thee—

POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

The Loudest Woman Here

Here he comes like always, my shining knight
He comes greeting everyone from his biggest fight
Frowning bows, teary eyes, and bloody skin
A tiny brain so he'll think he has been forgiven
Yet for him, our whole history is just a little sin

My shining knight needs to be saved
I give myself all up as you've craved
But without me, my knight has escaped
I find the back of my dress bloodstained

QUOTE OF THE DAY

If the pain is never sharp, can the passion ever be deep?

POEM OF THE DAY
A Dream Within A Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Between Going And Coming

Between going and staying
the day wavers,
in love with its own transparency.
The circular afternoon is now a bay
where the world in stillness rocks.

All is visible and all elusive,
all is near and can’t be touched.

Paper, book, pencil, glass,

Mother's Eye

Those deep brown eyes
Holds a lots of ties
What kind of ties?
She holds the ties among the family
Which makes all the bond taste like honey

Those deep brown eyes
Hides and predicts a lot of lies
What kind of lies?
The lies are the cries which she never told

QUOTE OF THE DAY

Everyone loves protection, but nobody loves protectors.

POEM OF THE DAY
The Tiger

The tiger, on the other hand,
Is kittenish and mild,
And makes a pretty playfellow
For any little child.
And mothers of large families
(Who claim to common sense)
Will find a tiger well repays
The trouble and expense.

POEM OF THE DAY - MODERN POEM
A Blessing

Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,
Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass.
And the eyes of those two Indian ponies
Darken with kindness.
They have come gladly out of the willows
To welcome my friend and me.
We step over the barbed wire into the pasture
Where they have been grazing all day, alone.
They ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness
That we have come.

Once In A Dream State (Written By Md. Alamin Al Azad)

In a dream she came:
I still have her picture in my heart's frame.
There was a romantic browed:
She was standing on the cloud
With a rose near the edge of the moon.
Then I dressed the boon;
Sitting on a white gee.
She was smiling at me.
I saw the juice of love in her gaze.
What a glittering face!
