Letters


Not too far
Lived a man
Near the ocean shores
Wrote letters to a girl named
Lenore

In isolation his soul soared
She recieved many letters
But answered few

When he learned of her marriage
It drove him mad
Writing the following letter

'Dear Lenore,
I write to you, but you answer no more
My heart is sore
But I will love you no more! '

He sent it off
After,
Wading into the shore
Waves swallowing him
He existed no more

As for Lenore
she never recieved the letter from
the man of the shore
The letter was lost,
washed out to sea
And so was the mans
Misery

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
