A reason of love


He loves me.
A lot. A little.
Not at all.
He loves me not.
The little girl

Long time melted away
the little girl
now, is quite old

not minding
the asylum's walls.
She finds herself back
to the mother's garden
singing all day long:
He loves me
he loves me not
he loves me
a lot a little
not at all
he loves me,
he...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We may forget who we are, we may lose the sense of space and time, yet the memory of love will always be revived in one form or another. If not for the love she had once, the woman wouldn't have a reason to sing, smile and play.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
