Art And Love

Rating: 2.9

For many long uninterrupted years
She was the friend and confidant of Art;
They walked together, heart communed with heart
In that sweet comradeship that so endears.
Her fondest hope, her sorrows and her fears
She told her mate; who would in turn impart
Important truths and secrets. But a dart,

Shot by that unskilled, mischevous boy, who peers
From ambush on us, struck one day in her breast,

And Love sprang forth to kiss away her tears.

Sometimes nothing seems to work out no matter how hard love tries. Another great metaphor poem for avid readers who look between its lines.
