Contest using love dread frown fellowship

Dreaded Love

by Philip Clarke

I do not  much love the dreaded fellowship of one who often wears a frown,

But I certainly  much prefer it to the frozen smile of a clown.


I do not dread the frozen ground when I set up my tent, 

And surely don't mind some good warm fellowship in cold places where I've went.


There are some things I used to love that  I've learned enough to dread,

as with a frown. I have come to see, might cause me to end up dead.


So I miss out on much of  that old fellowship with braver bolder men,

no longer dreaded, but more heavily breaded, I love the memories of where I've been.
