Overused & Underloved

A Dream of Spring by William Bouguereau

 

Overused & Underloved

Breathless.  Say slowly.
Breathless.  Again.
Breathless.  Now say it once more.
Breathless is beautiful,
Breathless is pain,
Breathless too long we ignore.
For the word, for the sound
Has lost all her wow
We’ve said her too often, for sure.
But breathless – just say it –
For once, let’s allow
Our ears to hear her soft roar.
Breathless.  Say slowly,
Breathless.  Say now:
Breathless.  As if we had never said it before.
