A Poem for Blake

The guy hates my verse. Pathetic, he called it. So, maybe he will not consider it a compliment. But, one never knows.

Certainly my verse needs a lot to improve it. To me, it is just a means of communication. It amuses me. It entertains me, the way one can capture the essence of a thought in a few lines. Certainly I am no expert in languages. The opposite, I am afraid.


Why clothe myself in darkness,

when light of love’s in the world?

Rather live a little and love,

Than live long to hate;

its a bitter canker-

unflattering the hater as the hated.


Pardon me, but are you a Christian?
