I wrote this in 1982...

A rose is a rose...

As long as it's a flower.

A king is a king...

As long as he has power.

A star is a star...

As long as it shines.

A jail is a jail...

As long as it confines.

A man is a man...

As long as he does'nt lose face.

A woman is a woman...

As long as she stays full of grace.

I Salute You - daughter of The Great Poet, "As long as..." you synchronize wonders.

"As long as..." is what poesy is meant for. This poem does all that Poetry means... strikes imagination, feeds intuition, enchants, teaches and flies the readers' souls on the wings of beauty.

I thank the Author of "As long as..." for sharing beauty and grace.
