A drop, a trickle, it swells and grows
little by little, untamed it flows
laughing and bubbling beneath the sun
fearlessly thru valleys and forests it runs.
Ebb and flow over pebbled beds
Rain falls, it broadens, water spreads.
Man taps its strength to harnesses its power
Dammed – it deepens and then moves slower.
Imprisoned by concrete, it finally breaks free
to finish its journey, heading to the sea.
This challenge was put out by a fellow blogger, Marlyn Exconde. So I thought I would give it a try.
The poem had to be no more than 10 lines. Each line had to contain only 4 words and each line had to have the word ‘love’ in it.
Can you rise to the challenge? Please try yourself and send in your poem.
Anyway – here is mine.
Love, how many ways.
Love of beauty fair
Children’s love- beyond compare
Love a wondrous emotion
Animal love unending devotion
Love thy Neighbours – feat
Food, love to eat!
Love of money – weakness.
Love fellow man- greatness.
Love is human kindness.
