“The Finer Things” Poem of the Day (2022)

“The Finer Things”

By Ashley O’Hare

A million roses,

A diamond ring–

none of it means anything

if you’re not with me.

I want to pick dandelions

with you in the park.

Leave the ring at the shop–

I would marry you with string

tied around my finger.

I have all the finer things

life has to offer

when you’re here.

In your presence

colors are bolder,

the sun shines brighter,

my heart is warmer.

There is nothing else

I could ask for.
