Let lovers woo, as wanton lovers will, And friends make haste to speak their faithful vow; I am content to fall into my rest Knowing therein I might find you somehow.

Thanks to all...I usually avoid writing poetry in a voice (or using language) not my own but these lines just came into my mind one day and I could not shake them. For weeks I tried to fit them into a longer poem without luck. Then it struck me they really were strong enought to stand on their own. I am glad you liked them :-)

Thank you Graham....it is the result of long years of practice writing haiku :-) It taught me economy of words. But if you read some of my stuff in the adult forum you will find I can be long winded too if the subject warrants LOL
