Earth And Haven


Here is the Earth,
far from the Haven
where thee and my son
are sleeping soundly
I see but my son sleeps,
still sleeps on my chest
I love him and he loves me too -

Here is the Earth,
far from the Haven
where the lake and the hill
twist with each other
hill lies but the lake,
sleeps on her chest
lake devotes on
and hill cherishes too

Here is the Earth,
far from the Haven
there the moon shimmers
on my old window
where moon laughs and
my dreams are rising slowly
moon kisses my dreams
and dream kisses her too

There is the Haven,
far from the Earth
here Earth kisses the haven
but Haven never
Here Earth is lonely
but there Haven is full
Earth missed the Haven
but Haven never.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
