    Sweet Love Of Mine
    By Jason Roop

    I know it hasn’t been long since I last saw you my dear,
    But to me it feels as long as five hundred year.
    I miss you to the point I am loosing all sanity,
    There has to be an end to all this calamity.

    I think of you every second and every breath,
    For you I would stare even into the face of death.
    To kiss your lips is to taste the sweetness of love,
    And it brings forth feelings from the heavens above.

    To look into your eyes is to gaze into the sky,
    So beautiful with the stars and the heavens inside.
    To see your smile is to see the divine,
    This poem is for you, sweet love of mine.

  23. Another E.E. Cummings fan here. 😉 That kind of writing is pretty… ageless, you know? It holds its appeal to child and grown-up alike.

    I’m not a fan of poetry, like at all, but I’d have to say that at the moment, my favorite is Where There’s a Wall by Joy Kogawa ( found here: http://www.library.utoronto.ca/canpoetry/kogawa/poem4.htm ); the story of oppression, lost hope, and potential for profound change.

    Hey Diddle Diddle by Elizabeth Harbour
    Hey diddle diddle,
    The cat and the fiddle,
    The cow jumped over the moon,
    The little dog laughed
    To see such sport,
    And the dish ran away with the spoon.
