A Letter to Love


Dear Love,
This is just to let you know
That your good name is flown about today
By hypocritical name-droppers
Who mistake lust for you
Thus, have I sought you everywhere
To ask why you don't care a hoot about this mess
But can't find you anywhere
And, sadly, those who claimed they knew you so well
And had a large dose of you to dispense
To souls void and yearning for you
Knew not a jot about you
Therefore, do send me your residential address
So I can pay you a private visit
For I need to know you intimately
But if you still live in the heart of man
Bother not to reply this missive
For I will never be your guest
Because that city is thickly populated
By desperate wickedness
Which is beyond human comprehension.
Best wishes.
Your admirer,
CJ.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
