No Swan Song…

no swanI have no swan song; words desert me now
That I have lost my youthful poet’s soul.
I have no will to sing one anyhow;
My heart’s as empty as a beggar’s bowl.
Such poor unhappy lines as I might pen
Cannot but show the dearth of feeling there,
As they fall flat and fizzle out again
And again, without their former flair.
And though they aptly show my poverty
Of spirit, passion, and creative fire,
This alone does not make poetry,
No more than ashes make a funeral pyre.

No Swan Song by Christopher Courtley,

My genial spirits fail;

And what can these avail



To lift the smothering weight from off my breast?





It were a vain endeavour,

Though I should gaze for ever





On that green light that lingers in the west:



I may not hope from outward forms to win

The passion and the life, whose fountains are within. 

From Dejection: An Ode by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Of course chocolate is my first wish for you along with love…

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.”
~Mother Theresa~

“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.”

~Lao Tzu~

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
