Love For Death


Death halted
eleven years
for your permission
to cross our door.

Only when you thought
it was your time
not to stay here
anymore

I saw it entering
like an obedient son
to do its duty
of carrying your soul.

Mother, I can not forget
I saw love in your eyes
for death.
I cannot. I cannot.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
