Poem of the Day: The Passionate Pilgrim
March 29, 2010, 3:19 am
Filed under: Quote

In this poem the author may seem to come off a lil bitter, however I see it as sarcasm, calm, patient and self possessed. Partake!

When my love swears that she is made of truth,
I do believe her, though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutor’d youth,
Unskilful in the world’s false forgeries,
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although I know my years be past the best,
I smiling credit her false-speaking tongue,
Outfacing faults in love with love’s ill rest.
But wherefore says my love that she is young?
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O, love’s best habit is a soothing tongue,
And age, in love, loves not to have years told.
Therefore, I’ll lie with love, and love with me,
Since that our faults in love thus smother’d be.

Oh yea, Photography by Alain Paris. Dope!

I have a new hobby of walking to my destinations, walking and taking my surrounding in, and appreciating the beauty of ugliness. It’s more of a visible pleasure of movement, art and oh yes the feminine. I adore the simple pleasures. Here’s a piece of street art I found along the way. Partake!
