Loving Your ABC
I do not know how one heart
Can grow so great
As to love A and B and C,
Unless it be that balanced
Upon the steady fulcrum of an M
An alphabet of loving sits so evenly
That all the letters have a place and part.

I name none,
But A is such a spirit
That all of lost mankind
Can find a mother there,
And healing strength
And wisdom from
The spirit of humanity -
Of those who lived at other times
In other places far away -
And words to comfort every troubled soul.

Then B has such a heart
That she would take into her care
Every soul now lost
And find them comfort there.
Blessed beyond all grace
Is any heart that B enfolds in hers -
For it must grow so great
With love's great joy
That all the world
Is compassed in one breast.

If C had not the fortitude
Of patient, quiet endurance,
Too many people
Would be deprived of love
And borrowed strength;
Too many lives
Would slip into the dark
And never know the comfort
Of the spark that lives in one
But lights so many faces.
None could possibly see that light
So courageously held up
Without loving its brave source.

Of other letters I could name an E,
Now lost among the passing crowds
Of passing youth;
An F long departed far from here;
A G that loved and lost
Yet still has strength to go on loving.
An H that loves  us all
And swears it true
Every time the wine has done its work
And I who loves the thought of love itself,
And for that thought is loved by many here.
A J that made a long long leap
Of faith and landed
In the arms of love safe and secure;
An S who rides an engine
Powered by love
Even if it crashes now and then;
And Y and V
And other As and Bs and Cs
Even a Z
And all the other letters in between.

For love is such a stuff it seems to me
That it like to the primal atom
Exploding when the Universe began.
A little, such a very little, starting first
And then, in hyperinflationary pushes,
Faster even than the speed of light
Filling all the vasty cosmos
Of our skies.

I walk today along my city streets
And watch with joy, around me
This Brave New World
Of faces smiling, joyful, loving;
Filling me with love
For all this family of Man
Till, though it seems my heart
Has expanded all it can,
I hear of one more birth
And find there is yet room
For another child inside.
Author's Notes:
About so many people that I have met on CP and similar places.

What a pleasure it was to hear you present this added a whole new dimension to this huge exquisitely written. Have we missed the discreet letter D, whose depth and desire are the definition of delightful. There is something to be loved about everyone we meet Davide...especially when we recognize the differences that make them so very your decerning heart has done in this piece. Wowowow...!!!!

I knew it would be better this way. Brilliant David.

This is such a work of art really. Into examining the structure and how it was planned, this is fantastic. It has all the elements of a great piece, and it is "cute" and real and everything I love to be able to put in a poem one day when I have grown more as a poet.
Outstanding, truly a unique piece.

I hardly have words to express the beauty of this piece, but I will try.

Reading your words made me smile today.

You have a keen eye David, the ability to see so much and appreciate the precious pieces of a soul, even when that soul may not see it for themselves. Your heart is bounding with love and joy within these lines, but the brilliance of your poetic skill cannot be ignored. I am with John on this, an audio would be superb!


This I do know, I am blessed and richer with the pleasure of calling you my dear friend.


Loving my D.

This is equivilent to euphoria I think. I believe it shows great strength and character,  spiritual and personal growth. I believe there comes a point in our li fe where we finally feel secure enough to provide the universe an opening through which love goes out, and is returned. So many beautiful souls out there in the big wide world! Welcome to Euphoria...
The concept was cute, the wording sweet, and the overall write portays a heart in bloom.

Such a wonderful write here so very refreshing to read love sure does some strange things to us that warm and fuzzy feeling inside whether it is love for a friend or mate fills your soul with such peace I just adored this poem Excellent job

A heartwarming and eloquent expression of the spiritual magnificence of multiplication....
When we allow ourselves to love indiscriminately, we allow some strange power to enlarge the heart to accomodate so much more than before.
