On The Highway To Success


‘Tis on this highway I thread
Left alone in the cold April rain
Seemed like the tales of the undead
Darts thrown at the heart resound with pain

‘Tis on this narrow road
With need for friends without foes
Road rough like the back of a toad
It’s galloping like a pack of blows

‘Tis on this road to success I transverse
With its perches and thorns all seeking for a choke
The details sometimes lead to a reverse
All making me a real ‘bloke’

‘Tis on this highway
That we all make our headway

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
