February Poem

With thanks to Carol, who gave me the book Sound and Sense (by Laurence Perrine) in which I found this -- short, since last month's was so long:

There's the wonderful love of a beautiful maid,
And the love of a staunch true man,
And the love a baby that's unafraid--
All have existed since time bean.
Bust the most wondeful love, the Love of all loves,
Even greater than the love for a Mother,
Is the infinite, tenderest, passionate love
Of one dead drunk for another.
