(For Dónall) Meeting


Meeting, we touched
touching, clung to each other
never to let go.

A coup de foudre? Oh yes
on a cloudless summer day.

    The time frame is so wide - 'never' - meaning 'forever' here and the simple phrases like 'A coup de foudre? Oh yes
    on a cloudless summer day.' make the ethernity seem so full of life - i have always imagined it a bit boring ;) but here you make it seem lovely in some British manner - cup of tea or something and everything goes well. Sweet little piece. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
