POEM OF THE DAY
My Delight And Thy Delight
My delight and thy delight
Walking, like two angels white,
In the gardens of the night:
My desire and thy desire
Twining to a tongue of fire,
Leaping live, and laughing higher:
Thro' the everlasting strife
In the mystery of life.
Love, from whom the world begun,
Hath the secret of the sun.
Love can tell, and love alone,
Whence the million stars were strewn,
Why each atom knows its own,
How, in spite of woe and death,
Gay is life, and sweet is breath:
This he taught us, this we knew,
Happy in his science true,
Hand in hand as we stood
'Neath the shadows of the wood,
Heart to heart as we lay
In the dawning of the day.

A Dream Lies Dead
A dream lies dead here. May you softly go
Before this place, and turn away your eyes,
Nor seek to know the look of that which dies
Importuning Life for life. Walk not in woe,
But, for a little, let your step be slow.
And, of your mercy, be not sweetly wise
With words of hope and Spring and tenderer skies.
A dream lies dead; and this all mourners know:
Whenever one drifted petal leaves the tree-

Yes You Are
In dark nights
And gray days
You Are still loved
In so many ways
With the pain
And the tears
You Are still stronger

The moon soul is cool
the sound of wind is accompanied by the sound of autumn often

The water ink is pleased
in the distant mountain, the moonlight light falling
I Bleed Unseen Tears
I may appear ugly
The unattractive, strange
That awkward soul
Yet my heart is kind
It is all inside your mind;
Less reality, more mind.
I Wish To Lay Beside You
I wish to lay beside you
Count you as my true love
To hold your hand in mine
Fingers wrapped together
Why to me does my body,
try to be so cruel,
for now getting up to pee,
every 3 hours at night seems,
There are few as beautiful as you
Not only in form but in spirit
I know you, your kind, your soul
The gentile folk, putting others first
Locked In Arms
I wish I could hold you in my arms all over again,
Make up for the times I failed to do so back when.
Only this time, I would not think to let you go,
Even if God, Himself, commanded I do so.
A Walk Through Life
Let not this game, limit ourselves
That who we may be someday
That which, we may achieve
The rules and regulations imposed
The Poet Alchemist
Your work is beautiful
A diaphanous veil draped over your heart
Illumined under the light of my radar
Revealing your true character
On the wall, the grass following the wind
By the fence, the plum blossoms refusing to yield to the snow
Love And Hate.
Love And Hate
The cloudy sea is vast
The rain threads are hanging in the sky
