Rhyme Song ... A Poem
In honor of Valentine's Day, several hubbers have recently written wonderful hubs and poetry about finding love; recognizing love and building upon it.
This lyrical poem speaks to why we may lose love, and poses the question, "Was it ever love to begin with?"
What rhymes and verse we failed to see
from our poet’s corner vanity;
Your skits and wits would turn me 'round
to find my phrase had missed the sound;
You’d juggle-toss my words with flair
yet failed to catch the meaning there;
And when we chose too carelessly
our heirs of prose and memory
would sing beyond the measure’s time
and quarrel with the mirror’s rhyme,
‘Till perished then the melody
that love once played for you and me….
