On this sidewalk


The cracks that split this path we walk,
And the holes that hold yesterday's puddles,
We start our journey here,
On this Sidewalk.
We tiptoe around the twigs that fell
From the beautiful trees that shade us above
On this Sidewalk.
And when dawn breaks,
and the light shines on our backs,
On this sidewalk,
I'll lift my hands to yours,
and we'll walk as one,
On this cracked Sidewalk.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
