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.

    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

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
