A message to proselytizers


Feebly, I have resisted a desire for public discourse on
Utterances of beliefs held sacred and private, and
Can't reason why I'd ever succumb to your
Kind entreats to enter commune,
Or abandon my ability to think for myself.
Friend, you have your old crusade, so
Finally, please just read between the lines.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
