The Bear The Sailor and Love
Learning to love
This is one of my early attempts at this style of poetry; the story is about a man and a woman who are lovers. The women believes she understands why her man is so distraught and in her own way she tries to help. But as you will read all is not as she assumes.
When the bear his temper frailed and reason lost
Stumbled through his day appearing blind to all around,
You just hugged him; you always loved that bear
And with a look you made him smile
But never too much to tease him.
When the sailor was lost and alone in his sea
And the waves they swelled a hundred high
You put aside your worries to search and sail beside
For with your love and a caring hand they calmed
And a whisper of words you saved him
Are bears able to love, do sailors talk to the sea
For the bear; the anguish not knowing how to
And the sailor; searching for words to
The bear, he’s learned to love
And the sailor:
... I LOVE YOU...
