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

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
