A Minute Poem by Ellis Parker Butler

A Minute

Rating: 3.0


She plucked a blossom fair to see;
Upon my coat I let her pin it;
And thus we stood beneath the tree
A minute.

She turned her smiling face to me;
I saw a roguish sweetness in it;
I kissed her once;—it took, maybe,
A minute.

The time was paltry, you’ll agree;
It took but little to begin it;
But since my heart has not been free
A minute.

The poem was excellent as I started to begin it. Thoroughly amused as I finished, I realized all it took was a minute.

A minute... The intensity and possessive powers of love!
