Love is greater than Gold


In perilous path, out there in the real world
Resilient soldiers march upon barren turf
Treading the path that holds the value of gold
Melt by the sun in the splendour of youth.

Hidden dreams like diamonds in the hole
Out in the world where opportunity holds
The fragrance of our heart that nature stole
In meadows and valleys their beauty unfolds.

The love that is greater than gold and silver
Cannot be bought with gifts and perish food
For we hold immortal dreams and live together
When in joyful mews we find the better mood.

To the towns and cities crushed in the season
Shoppers dream about the paradise given
They have lost the means and the best reason
Why we celebrate the moments seated within.

The passions we cherish are in treasured store,
And if we were given all the silver and gold
Could our hearts contain the value to add more?
Illusions shining brilliantly as the metals we hold.

The lustre of beauty is magnificent in our heart
When the images we hold contains the world
Fitting the shapes and songs in our cultural art
Display the theme that is greater than gold.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
