Touch - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

They say the best of tales
are never really told,
and that it never fails
that everyone gets old,
there are so many rules
including those of Moses
it is not only fools
who bring her fragrant roses.
Regardless, what is true
is that the tender touch
in place for me and you
is what I treasure much.

    A very 'basic' direct poem, Herbert. Sort of a departure for you? Interersting. LSP (Report)Reply
