The Four Letter Word

Most believe that finding Love

In the scheme of things

Is grand


We all want someone to

Reach out to us and take

Our hand


But it can be elusive often

Blowing in the wind

Like sand


  • Fay Slimm.

    How true your final lines Lorna.- love is elusive and you rhyme the impact in this write so very well.

  • Neville

    tis my most favouritest of four letter words, in the whole widest world ..

    ... and what an amazing song to accompany this little gem ...

    I was only listening to good old Joan B earlier this wet n miserable mane ....


  • orchidee

    A fine write Lorna, on a slightly drizzly mane here. We had 'proper rain' last week!

    • Lorna

      Raining here too! Maybe you're not so far away!

    • Poetic Dan

      Oooo, so true! Must by why a kiss in the rain feels so good, as it mash's our sand together! Maybe make a castle if you could!

      • Lorna

        So long since I've been to the beach - it isn't very accessible where I live. I've had a few kisses in the rain so haven't missed out there thank goodness.........

      • blue orchid

        when we find love,it's because god is leading us by taking our hands,and joining our hearts to only one man

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Love can be elusive but once found it will never be lost and get stronger each day.


      • orchidee

        A four letter word - SING. OK, I will - for EVER. Another four letter word there! lol.
        Oh no, they reply with other unprintable four letter words!

        • Lorna

          I purposely titled this one to upset Fido...............

        • L. B. Mek

          nice rhyme scheme - elegantly simple in message and tone,
          wonderful read

          • Lorna

            Thank you .... are you sure? Sometimes I think I'm a little too simple........... but I'm glad you enjoyed...... it's for fun isn't it.
