My Love Is Both A Hunger And 
a Giving My Love Is Both A Hunger And a Giving

My Love Is Both A Hunger And 
a Giving
My love is both a hunger and a giving,A need to have and also to bestow,A lavish lust for flesh and yet a yearningFor beauty as austere as polished stone. I want more than my life your happiness,And yet my happiness depends on you.Like a child I linger in your shadowWhile like a parent I take you in my...

How Often Do We 
linger
How often do we linger inThe vestibule of life,Not ready to embrace the soulWe've taken for a wife? Nor bear the dread oblivionOf being who we are?Nor render well our willing partWhen we are not the star? Ah, Valentine! This day of loveBehold what you have wrought!And seek within the love you haveThe love... Poems - Post by : 57735 - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 2220

Here There Are Not Tears 
enough To Tell You
Here there are not tears enough to tell youAll the love I have within my heart,Plainly to proclaim my love before you,Put with simple grace and little art.Yet I must try, for love ought not be hidden,Veiled for fear of nakedness if known,Afraid to enter silences unbiddenLest it should have to cross the stage alone.Even so, love needs the...

Happy Valentine, my love!All my love is yours.Praised be love that brings us home,Pilgrims to these shores.Yearnings here find harborage;Vanities, sly smiles.All that righteous anger rends,Love here reconciles.Even in the darkness whereNo bitterness finds rest,Thoughts of you are like a dawnIntent on happiness.Nor would I have so...

Be My Valentine, My Love
Be my Valentine, my love,As I will be for you,And we will love the whole day long,And love our whole lives through.For love has no parametersAnd does not end with time,But is the gift of paradise,A pinch of the sublime.So let us take this holidayTo resubmit our loveTo those within that know no sinAnd with the angels move....

Trees About To Bloom, In Bloom, Full-leaved Trees About To Bloom, In Bloom, Full-leaved

Trees About To Bloom, In Bloom, Full-leaved
Trees about to bloom, in bloom, full-leaved;Harrowing escapes, fresh plums and pears;A cold, gray afternoon, a son long grieved;Nearing home, the last long flight of stairs;Kindnesses returned, a glimpse of breast;Scent of lilac, hunger, tell-tale pain;Gifts one cannot use, a playful pest;Illnesses one would not wish again;Victories, defeats, the urge to dance;Imitation whipped cream, the real thing;New thoughts, a lingering death, a brief romance;Grace to love whatever life may bring....

Thanksgiving Is A Moment To 
remember
Thanksgiving is a moment to rememberHow little we can do to move the stars.All we are and have we must surrender,Nor is Earth less inscrutable than Mars.Knowing this, we know the need for friendsSharing both our pleasures and our pain,Giving, though it may not serve their ends,In joy the love that will our love...

Tell Me, Please, Whom I Ought To Thank Tell Me, Please, Whom I Ought To Thank

Tell Me, Please, Whom I Ought To Thank
Tell me, please, whom I ought to thank,Having come here not of my own will.All life can seem like a sadistic prank,Nor can I count the creatures I must kill.Kids imagine witches, werewolves, ghosts.Scientists see horrors every day:Guests that eat the insides of their hosts;Insects that cut up their living prey.Viciousness can sometimes seem the mainIngredient in this well-seasoned stew;Nor can I live without inflicting pain,Grace for which I guess I should thank You....

Thank You's Howl Like Wind

Thank You's Howl Like Wind 
across The Dead
Thank you's howl like wind across the dead,Howl dark and cold through trees that cannot speak,As none below has ears for what we say,Nor can a smile crease a vanished cheek.Killing lays all souls on one small bed. Yet we must thank you for ourselves, to seekOne moment of forgiveness on our way,Unloosing... Poems - Post by : erniemata - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 737

Thank You For A Memorable Evening Thank You For A Memorable Evening

Thank You For A Memorable Evening
Thank you for a memorable evening.Heaven is suffused with verbal light.As souls peer through the glass of conversation,No one knows what may be wrong or right.Kindness teaches far more truth than reasoning. Your food for tongue and thought was rich with seasoning,Opening a window on delight,Undoing tiny knots of revelation....

To Me Your Life Has Been An Inspiration
To me your life has been an inspiration.Happiness is mine because of you.As a mountain shows our destination,Never, in its grandeur, lost from view,Know that you have been my moral guide. You have shaped the one I am inside,Opening my heart with your affection,Underlying all I say and do.... Poems - Post by : Jeannie - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 969

There's Richness In A Love 
for Life
There's richness in a love for lifeHere among the valentines,A king and queen as man and wife:Not leaning towards what lust inclines;Knowing well the needs of stateYon regal grace alone attends,On which the peace, both small and great,Undone by doubt, alone depends....

There Is In Friendship Just A Bit Of Eden There Is In Friendship Just A Bit Of Eden

There Is In Friendship Just A Bit Of Eden
There is in friendship just a bit of Eden,Harboring our early innocence,Acting out of pleasure in our pleasure,Not calculating cost or recompense,Knowing the abundance that we breed in. Your friendship is a book that I may read in,Opening a truth I cannot measureUnless it be with signs or sacraments....

Thank You For Your Friendship And Your Love
Thank you for your friendship and your love.However life may turn, this gift will beA mountain that has made my river bend,Nor will it flow the same way to the sea.Knowing you is something I'm made of. Years will not this part of me remove.One lives for just a brief eternity,Understanding truths that never end....

Thank You For You: For Who You Are

Thank You's Are Like Candy As A Meal
Thank you's are like candy as a meal:However much I give would not suffice.After all your listening and sharing,Nothing that I say strikes me as real,Knowing the full measure of your caring. Yet thank you I must, for lack of more preciseOr fitting words, the like would my lips seal,Undo my thoughts and drown my heart in feeling....

Thank You For The Things You've Done For Me
Thank you for the things you've done for me.Happiness walks slowly, with a cane.Although inside I'm dancing to the moon,Nearby many obstacles remain.Kind help like yours those thorny thickets prune. You are my willing ear, the peaceful seaOn which I sail my thoughts, the quiet tuneUnderneath my laughter and my pain....

This home that you have built is made of love,Hope and happiness, hard grit and tears,All the strength of will a heart can move,Now ready to enfold us many years.Know that we are grateful for the giftYou've given us by working day and night.Over us though storms and trouble drift,Under this roof all is good and right....

The Party Was A Gift I'll Long Remember
The party was a gift I'll long remember.How might I tell you what it meant to me?Acts of love, generous and tender,No little pleasure add to memory.Kindness makes it beautiful to be.Yet I'd not allow you to be lenderOnly, as in this poor poem I renderUnglazed a bit of grace for you to see....
