Orthodox Love


I am not a middle aged man
neither my thought is as such
I am the result of grief told with romance
and for praising beauty, i leave no chance
my love is orthodox, and i am paralysed,
never bothered to remove my ugly mask
and, you know my darling never asks
why am i so ugly beneath the beautiful face
and, i pat her forhead and give my love,
but remember, my love is not that orthodox..

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
