A woman called Hope


A woman called Hope wearing red

Purses her lips like two vibrant rubies

This is youth, slender and tall

Looking for a man half decent to fall

She is a fever - wearing a pale blusher

Every man if they could would want her

If only to raise their own body temperature!

But Hope has a pout that says, look…

But come no further!

If truly, you want to be my lover.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
