The Boys First Love

The boys' puppy fell through the ice first                                                                                                   Then the boy jumped in after him                                                                                                                                                         Fear had been overruled by love                                                                                                                                         Later when he told his mother why they were frozen to the bone                                                                                       She put them  into a bath tub of warm water                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      And she cried                                                                                                                         Still the day had turned out all right                                                                                                             Because the boy was proud of what he had done

    'Fear had been overruled by love'...Love that line especially...Hard to get used to the spacing but it does make the poem pack more punch - Tim

    Michael, I emailed this to a friend of mine with credit to you as the author. This is very much worth sharing.

    Michael, I really love how you have captured this sentiment--fear being overruled by love. You are so right. I have tried to help many others in my life when I could. When I did not follow my heart, for fear of my own wellbeing, I was always torn afterwards. This is a really interesting and powerful piece. Thank-you again for doing what you do. You have a wonderful heart.
