The Love You're Putting In


Keep the gaggle of friends you choose,
all bundled for the night.
Think not the precious things you lose.
Not chose those friendlies right.

And now the loving words have changed;
replaced by common threat.
Seek ye live your life to wrong
gaze back to where you're at.

No hope for you to walk to long
down narrow passage ways.
And hope so deep with-in your heart
or dream the day he stays.

It's not all that you get from him
that marks the race is won.
It's all the love you're putting in
That keeps him there til dawn.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
