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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
