No Regret Of My Past


It was raining
I must be there
I have an umbrella
I decided
Not to go out

Opened the fridge
And took out meat
Cut into pieces
Put into the pan
Fried it until turned into brown

The rain cleared up
Prepared a dish so fast
I wanted to forget
Though the time looked at

My phone began to ring
I was surprised
It was not that I thought

It was raining again
I was so happy
You came in wring wet
Though you had an umbrella

I put two glasses
We talked about fried meat and
Your call given by chance
And my cancelled meeting

If you was me
I was not here
You worried about
When I forgot it

I looked out
It was raining
I smiled
You didn’t

But it was a pleasant
Rainy evening
With someone else

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
