Once More

 

 

Well now, here we stand once more,

 

Toes poised at the waters edge:

 

Not the novices who wore

 

Their hearts on their sleeves, to pledge

 

Undying devotion No,

 

More like battle scarred heroes,

 

All too reluctant to show

 

Truth to the theory; love grows.

  4. I really liked this poem…and how, even though we grow older and wiser, we are still reluctant to give up those ideals. Lovely writing!
