Decline And Fall


What radiance! Were those sea-borne
dolphins crowding the bow,
the sun just peeping up?
Or mist-drawn rainbow?

Sigma, alpha, pi, ego,
phee, omega, greeted,
arms akimbo,
the smiling lith on the beach.

At dawn we quit ship,
skipped town altogether, drove
to the far side of the isle,
there being 'way too many people in port.

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:
