Poets as Lovers I assume all poets are lovers. So every poet love can be compared to a hysterical character. I put it thus: a poet’s love is like a crescendo, other times it goes decrescendo or fairly in between. It may be lenient, sometimes it’s wild! So pay attention to your impressions, my friends. […]

Serenade

Busy bees are hairy and elegantThe wind sour with her fury flightRoses are red, honored by the breezeThe night shivers in this chilly sneeze For you, I’m a nightingale of twilightAnd I shall chant a serenade tonight
