...To Young Love


Your love is like a little child
Impish, prankish
My world is too fragile
It can’t sustain any brandish

Your childlike prances
Winsome words
Pleasant stances
Of a carefree nerd

Step with care
Lest you should break
Custom’s freaky, flimsy layer
And put the mores at stake

Love is sweet as honey
But dear are the faiths
Set by elders and family
That let us live in grace

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
