Uriah Hamilton


I’m Sorry I Couldn’t Kiss You - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

The cat in the wintry yard
Shivered in the freshly fallen snow,
I picked her up and she purred.
Life should be gently reaching out
To offer the vulnerable
Warm embraces.

When you cried on the telephone
A thousand miles away,
I’m sorry I couldn’t kiss you.

    This is a wonderful write. The two stanza seem far apart as if differing incident and yet there is a unity to thhe piece. A tenderness, if you will. (Report)Reply
