The English Lesson - a poem

Source



The verb, love,

placed between the pronouns,

I and you,

completes more than

a sentence.

Jane and Billy: Thanks for the positive comments. I'll be adding a poem a day until I reload all my poetry to HP. I moved it to Bubblews to see if it would get more views (HP not being particularly poetry-friendly) but that was a huge mistake - as everything with that site seems to be!

Good idea. I tried bubblews, but I dont find that its a friendly site. I couldnt work out who I was following and visa-versa and I think the only way you can earn money there is to constantly be posting and commenting all day long. Notice I said 'I think.' Just in case I have got that bit wrong.

Whereas hubpages keeps on earning even if you leave it for a while. Two years ago my husband posted a hub called 44K Power Enhancer - Does It Work?

Its still featured, still gets traffic and is still earning and he's done nothing on HP for a long long time!

Bubblews just shut me out after about 2 weeks. Someone suggested it might have been because my poetry didn't met their word limit. (?) I'm happy here. A few folks read my poetry and I write about many other things.

Good to meet you!

This is the most profound statement on love I've heard in awhile. Simple, but says so much!

Kathleen, can anyone say more than these words ? You have shown an ocean in a small pot. You are a real craftsperson. Beautiful words. Voted up.

Short but sweet Kathleen. No need for more words than that.
