Tonight at my apartment we had a poetry reading (yes - we are cool). I thought I would share one of my favorite poems with you. This poem is titled "The Birds Do Thus" by Robert Frost (although an overly used poet, this poem is in fact, not overused so I thus maintain some sort of originality. I hope).

The Birds Do Thus

I slept all day,
The birds do thus
That sing a while
At eve for us.

To have you soon
I gave away-
Well satisfied
To give - a day.

Life's not so short
I care to keep
The unhappy days:
I choose to sleep.

Anyway, this is a pretty romantic poem to me on many levels... And this is where I leave you for the night. Have a great day and hugs and kisses to all of you reading my blog.
