Bread Without Butter


The shacks are cursed
By water & bread-
There is no Calamari
Or Pesto Pasta with Pinot Grigio,
Or Baccalá with Pinot Grigio,
Or Fettucini Alfredo with Pinot Grigio,
Dinner is never complemented
By Cantaloupe & Gelato
No one will dream
Of Chickarees or Quokkas-
But, from time to time, an old Fisherman,
Sedated and asleep in his shoes,
Flies with sparrows
Through Disco-cotton balls
Falling from the sky.

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:
