April is National Poetry Month

             The Look 
Strephon kissed me in the spring,
       Robin in the fall,
But Colin only looked at me
       And never kissed at all.

Strephon's kiss was lost in jest,
       Robin's lost in play,
But the kiss in Colin's eyes
       Haunts me night and day.

A poem by Sara Teasdale to celebrate National Poetry Month.  For more about Sara Teasdale go here.

never have had a 'colin' in my life, wished with all my heart i did, i still don't. always had this struggle as to why it seems that some of us have a life where we get to sit back and watch it, rather that experience it! well, the colin part of it, anyways ;)
enjoy this day, beautiful one!
