Love Poem

Today, one of my favorites, by the great Donald Hall. What I love about this tiny poem is how it can capture, in images, a universal experience, and make us see it in a new way – something poetry, like all art, can do.

Love Poem

When you fall in love,
you jockey your horse
into the flaming barn.
You hire a cabin
on the shiny Titanic.
You tease the black bear.
Reading the Monitor,
you scan the obituaries
looking for your name.
