Treasure Island

Valsa George


Simple Verse. No.9. Love at First Sight


A spark lit through presence
Fanned through glance
Brightened through absence
Blazed through romance
Steadied through alliance
Tested through defiance
Weakened through silence
Oft extinguished through clash

    Love at first sight is after all either blind or beyond reason
    If accepted, it is a folly of prudence
    And if and when rejected it is a bubble of despair...
    Love after many a sight has no tale to tell either....
    If culminated in matrimony, it is a convention trespassed
    And if extended without that, it is a conviction imbibed.

    A simple verse for a high cause. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
