Cupid's Arrows


Pit where the buffalo cooled his hide,
By the hot sun emptied, and blistered and dried;
Log in the plume-grass, hidden and lone;

    Sometimes LOVE can be aimed at an interest or a pursuit of happiness rather than a member of the opposite gender..I was a little puzzled at first but this off-beat poem has several different meanings.. (Report) Reply

    A well compiled write yet it causes me confusion...if anyone works out the connection between the title and the write id be interested...all i can guess is that throughout the work he suggests discomfort and taking risks, as we all do in joining in love? where the best men ride? intriguing is he considering the best men those who can bare to stay.....not sure.

    Interesting, and very well written poem, but I don't understand everything.
    The general idea is clear, but what is the description of the general area good for? (Report) Reply

    This is childish macho nonsense at its worst. It shows a deep fear of women. Such a writer is almost certainly a repressed homosexual. (Report) Reply

    What is Cupid but a hunter of hearts, whose arrows goes deep and true?
    What is love but the hunt of hunts where the dinner of choice is you? (Report) Reply

    What does that have to do with Cupid in anyway? I mean its a nice poem but really, why name it 'Cupid's Arrows' (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
