Desire


For all that argument's sake,
Let me propagate
A subtle quote,
A short verse,
Which should initiate,
Perhaps narrate,
Or better imitate,
The true meaning of desire.
'Our desire is a true desire
When it desires to create
A better change
A drastic interchange
Of ideas and lives
Of minds and motives.
Which if it fails to do
Is then nothing but pitiable rue.'

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:
