A Copious Amount Of Love


A copious amount of love is all I need
I’m a tad stronger than a climbing rose
But I need sunlight to grow
I need compassion to breathe…

I need empathy in every touch
A copious amount of love
To make my pergola—arch!
A dove-white wing…

Oh I need a summer house!
To shelter me from all my tears,
A copious amount of love
Warm as the sun, up above…

A copious amount of love is all I need…
A fire sign to my water!
To disguise the night times horror
All I need is your love.

For you to gather these silkweeds
And I’ll behold you my golden lotus…
In every midnight hour
We’ll bloom, animated as owl-wings,
Glowing in the dark - together
Hooting, hooting, love forever…

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
