Poetry Sunday

A poem doesn't have to be long and involved and have perfect rhyme and meter to be interesting and thought-provoking ...

by Emily Dickinson

A Charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld –
The Lady dare not lift her Veil
For fear it be dispelled –

But peers beyond her mesh –
And wishes – and denies –
Lest Interview – annul a want
That Image – satisfies –

Yes, Dear Readers, sometimes ... even most of the time ... what we imagine is better than what we see.

Have a good day. More thoughts coming.
