Welcome to our monthly Poets Anonymous!
On the 15th of each month, I’ll post part of a poem. If you have a blog, post a poem on yours and share your link in the comments. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to share part of a poem in the comments. Or, I encourage you to simply read a poem today.
The water is wide,
I can’t cross over,
And neither have I wings to fly.
Build me a boat
That can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I.
There is a ship
And she sails the sea.
She’s loaded deep,
As deep can be.
But not so deep
As the love I’m in,
I know not how I sink or swim.
*Edited: I have memories of hearing this song sung by James Taylor, however it has a richer history, according to Wikipedia.
