Ann's Corner

A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

“Poetry” Offering, #3, Two Men


Two men

 

I love two men

One is an adventurer

Brave, bold, aggressive, in the physical sense

 

The other is a dreamer

Quiet, calm, gentle

In the spiritual sense

 

The first is one who

Always hovers close

Ready to claim me

In the physical sense

 

The other, I yearn for

To hold and keep me

In the spiritual sense

 

May the elements

Battle over me

I know which is

The true power

 

The physical world

Lasts but an instant

Is doomed to end

 

The spirit endures

Forever

 

Ann McQueen, 1980

      I’d be interested to hear more about that, over a nice cup of tea 🙂

    I just realised you meant MY battle was going on the year YOU were BORN!
    I was thinking you had a similar battle once….. 😉

    But we still need to have TEA 😉
