World Poetry Day poem.

(to all my poets)

What did you get, my friends asked me
serving poetry, thus far.
I did not do it for reward.
Yet reward I got
for when all leaves me
or if all applaud
when they later leave
behind closed door
she comes to me
and all night long
she is mine only.
And all night long
I enjoy her
my sweetest Dove

my poetry.
