Feel the music in your heart
Touching softly, t'will impart
Upon the soul, heartfelt romance
Two joined as one, in sensual dance
Passions coursing throughout the night
Swaying softly in Luna's light
In song's reprise, love's symphony
I sought my love, please come to me
Sweet song's embrace, deep satin kiss
I sought, I found, my mortal bliss
But then the dawn, into the night
The music fades, in morning's light
On final note, so ends the dance
As dancers wait for love's next chance
To turn away the lance of pain
And dance again the sweet refrain.

Very nice, indeed, Mike - In response, I can only suggest that you look at the poem posted previously called "Cyber Seas", written by Ron (our gracious host here at Passions - with a repartee from me).... Check it out

I thought the first one of yours was excellent. This one is at least its equal, if not better. Nice work!

Mike,
It took me a while to find this, but I must say, it was well worth my search. This is a wonderful posting. The rhyme is very tight and the flow is like a gentle stream...so soft it just takes you right with it.

Fabulous piece man! Makes me want to dance with you! You can dance, right? Beautiful rhyme and flow....it's hard to keep that and still say what you want eloquently...~blowing kisses~

I dance in luminescence of Luna's crescent,
In the arms of a goddess, from heaven sent.
Aye, I will dance with you as I caress your silken delight,
As in your arms I sway enraptured, from dusk until the morning's light.

I glide across the ballroom floor,
as band begins to play,
Take you gently in my arms,
As dance to love's ballet.

Gershwin love songs fill the air
as new dance has begun,
I feel your warmth in our embrace
as two now dance as one.

Through the night til rising sun
I hold you in my arms,
Dancing in our lover's waltz,
Entranced by music's charms.

Music calms the savage breast,
but dance doth charm the heart,
Forever in our lover's waltz,
With dance we ne'er will part.

It flowed like a song ... exquisite. I'll have to tell my love to read this one; it almost wouldn't be a stretch to dance to it ...

Well done.
