I know that you understand french so a post a french poem. I don't remember if i post it on my blog or not. This is an old one poem i wrote a not so sad day.

Amour du temps passé, amour envollé.
Mon coeur blessé ne fait que saigner.
Loin de moi tu t'es envollé.
Depuis mon coeur est exangue a force de saigner.

Que ne donerais-je pas pour t'emmené loin des hommes,
Loin des loups et autres prédateurs des gens heureux.
Rien de plus qu'un rêve fou en somme.
Je n'ai rien que des souvenirs malheureux.

Tu restes dans mon coeur et dans mon âme,
Quelque soit le temps, et la distance,
L'on va toujours ou nous guide notre âme,
même si l'on doute d'avoir une chance.

Même si l'on doute de récolté ce que l'on sème,
On revient toujours vers ceux que l'on aime.

I hope you enjoy it. Bye. Take care of yourself.

Carba your poem is beautiful, though very sad, I'm glad you are happy now, thankyou for sharing it, love the part about always returning to those you love.

Q Neetee yes I did and I'm really happy thank-you, one of my cats is helping me type this by blocking out the moniter with his tail, he knows I am trying to express how useful this is by moving him onto my lap so he returns faithfully each time, and he doesn't aprove of my spelling either as he has added the word ghyb, I am too stupid to understand the importance of this word, which he knows but perhaps it is a special message for your cats.

Shubhodeep feel free and thank-you
Nicole if only and Oui, la poesie est très romantique, et aussi très triste.

When you talk about poem, you take the word from my mouth. They talk about love and the sadness we have sometimes. From times to times when we wrote, we give a part of us into it. When i said "from times to times" you can read "practically each times". That's why i enjoy writing even if i don't put on the net each time.

Bye

I made an other poem for your cooking time. I hope you enjoy it. I bring a part of my sadness and a part of my hope into it. I made it in french.

Que la lune bleue éclaire en cette heure,
L'espoir que me laisse ma torpeur.
Que n'ai-je pas, en cette vie, souffert,
Je n'ai que faire de cette vie de fer.

Que la lune bleue veille en cette heure,
Car mon bonheur demeurre.
Que n'ai-je espéré ce bonheur qui vient,
mais puis-je le réclamer comme mien?

Que la lune bleue pleure en cette heure,
Car le malheur demeurre en mon coeur.
Que ne dois-je souffrir de voir les autres en pleurs.
Comment puis-je en les regardant le dire heureux?

Que la lune bleue m'aide en cette heure,
A les aider a trouver leurs bonheurs.
Mais qui suis-je pour les aider?
Je ne suis qu'un humain déjà oublié.

Take care of yourself. I hope to read you soon.

Russel's Poem
Smile fruit with remember potato

for Sue

So the ham and cheese morning rests on the little it knows.
Angels gather together in the kitchen of dreams
Not slick and stainless, tile and grout,
But close and crowded, clean and lean.

It was so unexpected, that kitchen, practically over lake waters.
In the weakening summer sprinkled with Dutch rain
It climbed the narrow stairway to the sky,
One leg in Eden the other in the deepening water out from the shore.

The handfuls of gadgets were home at last, having found one another.
In another room sat Montaigne scratching that itch,
Ready with manuscript to go to the Voorschorterlaan Station with
The press already rolling like a subway on its track to London.

Kitchens should always speak Nedderlander above the tree tops
High where the best fruit grows.
