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.'

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?
