Love In The Air


I live on earth
I hear love is in the air
I look up to catch some breath
What I inhale is flare
If what I seek is in the air
How come it doesn't live here?

Maybe if I travel far
Far up high, soar
Mars, Saturn and Jupiter
I could catch some fresh air
And love in the air

I exhale air
Breathe out some fresh love
In return, I inhale fumes
But love, they say is soothing
Gentle and cool
It's fresh air

Day by day
I wither away
Wearied by the travails
My eyes shed tears
My heart weeps in despair

I wander searching for love in the air
Alas! I trampled on it on earth

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
