Poem Commentary

This and that often need each other.

Counterpoints

Found as I am of cute freckles

I like suntan much better

Fond as I am of quick email

Nothing’s surpassed the love letter

 

Fond as I am of my import

Wish Detroit would build my car

Fond as I am of a lover’s moon

I’ll still wish upon a star

 

Fond as I am of daisies

It’s the jasmine that melts my heart

Fond as I am of chocolate cake

I eat last the frosted part.

 

Fond as I am of hot showers

I prefer two in a bubble bath

Fond as I am flirty winks

I wait for the musical laugh

 

Fond as I am of pizza

I’d still rather wash it down

Fond as I am of the circus

My favorite’s always the clown

 

Fond as I am of flying

I breathe relief after we land

And fond as I am holding your gaze

I’d rather slow fondle your hand.

 

Fond as I am of travel

Best friends are best close to home

Fond as I am of my hairbrush

I always will pocket a comb.

 

Fond as I am of creating

Lines to be read by a friend

Something inside’s anticipating

To arrive at some smashing good end.

This was an absolute pleasure to read, Harv. And the end was definitely 'smashing good' ;) Thanks so much for making me smile this morning.

Harvy, this is so cute and unique of you, I love it! I can relate to the bubble bath of two verses the shower. Much more delightful when enjoyed by two, this liquid with bubbles in. Maybe a star or two floating and I will wish on mine and catch one, you the same? Awesome write my friend!! Hugz

Oh Harver, you always know how to balance the id and ego of poetry. A grand scheme of fondness! ginga

How did I manage to leave out the super=ego? I'll have to try harder . . . yes, that is what I should have done before now. LOL Harv

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
