So tell me passioned poet, may I know
The thoughts that lonely midnight serves to you
Do you drink the sweetest nectar pressed from love
Or sip a chilling, fruitless iced-regret?
Does passion's blush caress your cheeks with thoughts
Of days when love laid tenderly her touch
All-shining memories that cull the dark
And carry you to morning's soft adieu?
Or does the sun, in callous light, reveal
A sadness that will never kiss the dawn?

In lifting gentle eyes to greet the night
Do you seduce the alabaster moon
Does Luna's light, in awe, avert compare
And shine a vassal's fealty on you?
Such selflessness you offer without thought
Commanding her respect with glowing grace
More eloquent than eloquence you gift
Your words that sail like swallows on the breeze
To stroke a sighing soul with silent balm
And flush all selfish anger from these veins.

Magic words Osprey, you wrote it very well.
Take care.

Marvelous use of metaphors to make your poetic exopression.
Very enjoyable read.

Oh, there is but one reply to this wonderful write.  More Please!

Midnight simmers in validation, of the soul's most deepest wishes, let out to play upon the stage of dream.  There, all that is destined is made known in the spotlight of the moon.

"More eloquent than eloquence you gift
Your words that sail like swallows on the breeze
To stroke a sighing soul with silent balm
And flush all selfish anger from these veins."

Now that would be the goal.

I fail most often.

So? I celebrate failure.

On the other hand? That above is entirely quotable, if I only had a brain.

A delight, with layers of nuance.

Absolutely gorgeous poem. This, so classical in language and style is the true bottom line to me in what is most beautiful about poetry as an art form...enjoyed the read very much~

I think I may have been a tad guilty of not thanking everyone for their comments. So here's a mighty thank you to each and everyone of you, here and on other posts. That you have taken the time to read and post such generous comments is very much appreciated.

Is it because so many read here,
or do I sense A knowledge of
yes, I'm here again?

Whatever it is, it is good, and you are more
than welcome.

Now, I will have to find out if I or some other member have welcomed you properly.
