A Rudderless Boat


I am a frail rudderless boat
broken by the fierce storm,
I am floundering helplessly
on the rough seas of life,

the light has fled with the sun,
dark clouds carpeted the skies,
and hid the pole star from sight,

please let your love shine.
it shall be the beacon light
to lead me to your heart's harbor.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
