Vera Sidhwa


I Ran


I ran as fast I could,
They wondered why I would.
I was running in my mind,
To see what clue I could find.

I ran under skies white and blue,
I ran at the edges of the ocean blue.
It seemed a wonderful thing to do,
So I ran as fast as I could.

Once a reason to stop,
Came my way,
So I fast as I could,
Ran away.

    You are either running to something
    or running away from something
    or just running in place for no reason at all
    I used to be a runner and remember vaguely the joy of
    a runners high and ran and ran and ran but never in my mind. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
