If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking,

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

I know this poem is not for me, but I can pretend. Thanks for the laugh :) .
What a great experience to watch a couple of talented poets as you two are send poetic notes back and forth..........This is what this website should be about! Sincerely, Mary
This is a fun poem......
I think we're all in a touchy feely mood today....I'm sure she loved it Herbert!
Well Herbert, I'm delighted you liked your limericks...and also delighted that I saved you from being sad. It is wonderful to find such a good friend from Down Under. And to be inspired by his humor. :) Raynette
