Quotable

Some quotes from poems, for your enjoyment on this Chipotle Thursday.

"Never try to trick me with a kiss
Pretending that the birds are here to stay"

"I am everywhere,
I suffer and move, my mind and my heart move
With all that move me"
- John Berryman, "The Ball Poem"

"And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed."
— Kahlil Gibran,"The Prophet"

"If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me."
— W. H. Auden, "The More Loving One"

"But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."

We are blest by everything,
Everything we look upon is blest."
