Today is World Poetry Day

In honor of World Poetry Day today, I offer

EROS

        – by Gifford MacShane

 

how time does pass

and yet not dull

           the thrill and silent words

                               the lightning glance

 

the spark

            electric in its charm lives on

 

startled once

       the swift and eerie message in the air

                    did touch my heart and lodge there

 

and rending now and then does still abide
