Below is the poem of the day entitled One Must Remain: which was written by poet Rick Keeble.


One Must Remain:

Like a thunderbolt through the heart, She was beauty, a work of art, A snowfield on a summer's day, She was an angel here to stay. Such loving eyes to gaze upon, How could I ever do her wrong, The moment of truth did come then, As I wrote with paper and pen. Was she truly the love for me? This is something that I must see, Plainly my love for her was torn, To walk in two worlds I was sworn. One of love the other duty, Neither shall wane but one must be. (Eight syllables per line)

    Very good poem about conflict. If duty hurts another, wouldn't love go out the window?

    Honor and love are not always on the same side, Bud. They should be though.... But, sometimes the choice comes down to right and wrong or happiness and pain. And, whatever we do of import we just have to pray that if we follow the right path because our reward will be peace.

    Not sure about that! The reward that is! But we all shall find it in the end. /|\

    Neither shall wane, one did win.... Duty did, I think. If not, would this poem be so filled with longin?

    A truly gorgeous and moving sonnet Rick, the first line reminded me of a line from the Godfather, when Michael's in Italy and eyes up a Sicilian beauty. :)

    Noooooo you don't know what you're missing, it's epic. :)

    Tell me you've never seen the Godfather?! “You can’t hide the thunderbolt. When it hits you, everybody can see it. Christ, man, don’t be ashamed of it, some men pray for the thunderbolt. You’re a lucky fellow.” POTD...well deserved Rick! :)

    I read this gem this morn and afterwards sat down to compose a sonnet inspired by this wonderful piece my friend. Have presented that creation here mere moments ago and hope it does justice to the fine artist and the great sonnet that shown so bright and inspired it.. Added this jewel to my fav list..

    Such a beautiful love poem thought it still holds a question within, is she the one? Only time can answer that my friend but it sure sounds like the answer could be yes. Really well written Rick.

    Thanks, Chris! The answer is she was! /|\
