The Messenger
by: Arthur Zulu


I sent you to her to say,
“I love you.”
And you come back and say,
“She wants a castle.”

I dispatched you to my love to say,
“I dream of you.”
And you return and say,
“She needs a flower garden.”

Go, tell her I own no castles or flower gardens.
But I can write her sweet poems of those.
Don’t tell me, “She reads no poems.”
For castles and gardens perish.
But love never dies.
And poetry is love!
