Kansas City Poet Tom Zart & People In Love - Poem by Tom Zart
Kansas City, I love you
Where else would I want to be
But by the fountains in the parks
With my girl smiling at me.
If Shakespeare were young and alive
He'd be on a carriage ride
On the Plaza by Brush Creek
Kissing the lips of his bride.
I lived a while in New York
And I've partied in L.A.
Kansas City is my choice
For the rest of my life to stay.
You’ll find me at the Starlight
Holding the hands I love.
We just hug and watch the show
Beneath the stars above.
We love the Chiefs, the Royals
Words of Fun and the zoo
Great tasting steaks, casinos
And the world's best barbecue.
PEOPLE IN LOVE
God must love people in love
Or He wouldn't have made so many.
Those who claim it's a mental disease
Have never been loved by any.
Love is stronger than life itself
And jealousy more cruel than the grave.
Men and women have loved one another
Since they spent their nights in a cave.
No rope or cable can hold so tight
What love can do with twine.
No kiss can taste so bittersweet
As the one which captures our mind.
The first sign of love is the last of wisdom
As eager hearts fulfill desire.
Love is just a staple of life
Though Heaven sparks the fire.
Heaven knows no rage like love
Once to hatred it has turned.
How wise are we who are such fools
Who forget the lessons we've learned.
Love, indeed, descends from Heaven
Like a shooting star across the sky.
Love sometimes stirs the dust
Till tears fall free from the eye.
