    What an odd ditty. Never read its likeness before. You've offered something different, unique. It begs for more development, though. It's somewhat abbreviated, and I was wanting more of the story when it ended. (Report) Reply

    And what is health? what is the relation between poetry and health?
    So far my knowledge goes
    Health is matter, poetry is spirit my dear.
    Both are interlinked.
    See poetry as symbol of love affection and all goodness
    Love poetry as poetry loves you.
    You are to take care of your health
    Poetry is there to take care of you. okay. please reply. (Report) Reply

    it reminds me of my golfing buddy he always lights up a cigar on back nine.
    i always walk ahead of him and very far. (Report) Reply

    I absolutely loved this poem. It made me smile, thinking of my joke that I am smoking for the cancer. Beautiful work darling.

    Blessed be

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
