Poetry Tuesday: Three Poems


It's Three, Three, Three Poems for you on this Poetry Tuesday!!!


Oh,
I am thinking.
Oh,
I am thinking
I have found
my lover.
Oh,
I think it is so.

--Chippewa Song



....Really, I began the day
Not with a man's wish: "May this day be beautiful.
But with the bird's wish: "May this day
Be the same day, the day of my life."

--Randall Jarrell



The memories of long love
Gather like drifting snow,
Poignant as the mandarin ducks,
who float side by side in sleep.
--Kenneth Rexroth--"100 Poems from the Japanese"


Please note: Betty is going away for a little Gal Pal Retreat! I will miss visiting all your blogs, but I'll be back to catch up soon!
