Preserving Good Shards - Poem by Douglas Scotney
I had trouble ending a poem
in which I'd listed several negatives
in spite of which love arose.
I ended up with,
'It is because of the above
or of something beyond the above
that he inspires love.'
as the culmination of a few failures,
I wrote, 'How can he be all the above
and still inspire love? '
and wrote this
as I thought that
was deserving of preserving.
