To place me on a shelf's ok
I will not mind at all
But make that place a special spot
Where dust and gloom won't fall

For I've been sent to put in mind
One's love unfailing true
But can not settle, no my love
A place not seen by you

I must be seen by you my love
At least ten times a day
For that is only tenth the times
The thought of you gives way

My job this time will not become
Again displacing space
But hope my dear for me you'll find
For him that golden place

From time to time please think of words
You'll find within this jug
Of love that's true undying still
The strings his heart you tug

I hope you can see this CAR...

I really like your use of 6 and 8 syllables in this work. It is so very Englishy of you. Very witty as usual. Miss you in these here parts, old man.

Gathering Dust?

To say I like this post goes without saying. I went looking for you as you commented on one of my poems today. And I thought 'I' had been absent and busy!

It would be good to have you back and posting regularily again, but unfortunately I cannot even guarantee that for myself, life is hectic.

Maybe we should all exchange Avatars and our favorite poems and put them on our shelves!

Have Fun,
