Answer To A Child's Question

Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove,
The linnet, and thrush say, 'I love and I love!'
In the winter they're silent, the wind is so strong;
What it says I don't know, but it sings a loud song.
But green leaves and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving, all come back together.
Then the lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings, and forever sings he--
'I love my Love, and my Love loves me!'

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I'm sorry mum and dad for being a bonus pack of pain.
I have really liked the fact that you have realized your mistakes and have repented. Iam sure mum and dad have forgiven you. I like it
the right words in the right time. i wanted to apologize to the dearest people i've known in my whole life but i didnt know what to say and when i read your amazing poet i was inspired. thank you for reading my mind without realizing that you did so. keep up the good work.
