Tuesday Poem: Love-Poem for February

Post image for Tuesday Poem: Love-Poem for February

Thus should love start, thus should love start:

A slow chill creeping on the heart,

A wind from nowhere, stirring leaves

And sending whispers through the eaves.


Thus should love grow, thus should love grow:

A river swelling to full flow,

A stream of feelings, flooding wide

And sweeping two souls with the tide.


This should love end, thus should love end:

A broken catch one cannot mend;

A shattered window, staring blank

And empty since the waters sank.
