Love in the Snow
Syllable Poem in text and on video
Love is to die for
- and you do.
Death is a hole in your shoe,
as you walk in the snow.
Whole is the heart that didn't love
- and does it show!
Snow is the blood of the heart that didn't love
- and of the heart that died.
So, you die if you love,
and you're dead if you don't.
What's a man to do?
I cry when I love,
and I smile when I die.
And though there's a hole in my shoe,
I stomp on the snow.
My "Syllable Poems" are written exclusively with one-syllable words, which is not that hard in the English language. All the words of fundamental importance to a poet have just one syllable.
