4 Letters


I beg just four letters of you
Of no use to me the twenty two
Give me those four letters of you
They’re all without them I can’t do.

Only four letters in your eyes I search
Can do without the twenty two
Is it looking for too much,
Seeking that precious gift from you?

Four letters I won’t ask for more
I can walk miles to get from you
When you find me standing on your door
Know I’m craving those four from you.

Four letters isn’t a tall order
You can easily spread them my way
Over all the wall all the border
Can give me those four any day.

I want little will do with your four
For them I do beggarly crave
When you see me on your door
Give them and make me your slave.

    Beautiful composition with four letters i.e. LOVE which looks not frugal though other twenty two letters seem not prodigal,

    So beautiful! How happily we could live with just those four letters. I could read this over and over. (Report) Reply

    The four letters- LOVE are so rewarding! It is more profitable to barter all the remaining twenty two letters of the alphabet with these four letters! A great write! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
