TONGUES TO HOLD

Contemplation

Contemplation (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Is it possible, when we have tongues that want to speak

All the time, to ask and tease

badger and please

To scold and nag, beg and wag;

When spoke, to provoke

Till ties are broke …

 

That we could, for a moment there

Keep them closeted and unaware

Till we find the words to spare

That show we love and care…

Do we so dare?
