My Women My Dream


Bring it on: my answer
Your wave of anger
Thorns in your flower
My lover‘s dagger

The heart of my desert
My oasis blossoms
Shades in crescent
My golden autumns

Your salt my sugar
Your vinegar my honey
My visions your answer
Foundation of my abbey

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday my America
From tiny village to big city
To every child, mama and papa

Happy birthday lady liberty
Happy birthday my earth, my tree
This soil my heart claims
Its mind's my guiding trails

Knowledge in your discovery
Home of my bounty
Nourishes my bones
Frames my cheekbones

No no it is not too late
I refuse to give up
It's not determined by fate
I decide the size of my cup

Happy birthday America
You held me in your motherly arms
The Faith, the Hopes of my Alpha
My stalk grows stronger in your farms

A man found his way
Your freedom in me bestow
My alphabet's mainstay
I aim my mind's crossbow

Two minds merge into one
Love of my soul your soil
This young tea of Boston
Will rise again and boil!

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.
