Delicious Sorrow

I tried to grasp the sunset hour
And hold the sun at mountain's edge
To savor more the loveliness
Of delicate light on field and hedge

So sweet the final fleeting moment
The subtle radiance it throws
The way it touches child's face
Like soft angelic halo's glow

And now it's gone, the moment lost
But oh, what a delicious sorrow!
For now my heart sings better songs
In wait of sun's tomorrow

Elizabeth Santos

Yes yes yes!
This is just how I feel at the..

edge of sunset
standing on the tip
of surrender
to a glimpse
into the color
of the Gods
elusive so fragile
a spear of light
thrust straight
into my soul
I long to drink
the ochred mauve
and imbibe fired skies...


there - first returned poem from a particularly feminine Severn.
YOur work is lovely - I can see those colors.

Dear Miss Severn
That is one of the most eloquent responses to any of my poems
You should post it!
Thank you for your sunrise (at least here) reading and most exquisite comments

Wow! Oh wow.
Blushing.
Thankyou!!!!
No - I won't post it - it's intertwined with your one now so it just has to stay there.
Well - it's 12.30am where I am right now - weird to think most of the netpoets have all been asleep!

An eloquent display
To a lovely time of day.
How sad we mourn the loss
Of that which shall return
But how happy you look forward
Tommorrow's lesson learned.

Elizabeth,

The sunrise hour also holds many secrets
Secrets that only lovers know
Secrets told without words
Secrets that let love grow

The moment that the sun meets the sky
Lights the face of the one that I love
Her face glows like the angels above
And it is in this moment that I know true love

Sven

That which gives light must endure burning

Elizabeth, my friend -
This is such a pretty grouping of thoughts.
Each thought lays around the palette, waiting for the artist to but touch her brush into the edges ... to paint the hedge with a touch of sunlight.
Very, very nice ... early morning ~dove~.

Elizabeth,
Your simplicity is the key.
That turns the lock of my mind.
For every time I read your poems.
It sheds a light that purblinds.
Exquisite.

At every lovely sunset's edge
When silence fills the air
I simply close my eyes once more
To see you standing there
The way you looked so long ago
When you were here with me
In day's fading shadow light
It's only you I see
So let the daylight fade to dusk
Let day succumb to night
If only for this one brief moment
I drown in your sweet light
The sun will fade, Today will end
Tomorrow will come fast
But let me live just one more night
Buried in our past
I will face the brand new day
I'll let you go tomorrow
But tonight, as golden sunset nears
Be with me in my sorrow

Elizabeth, as always, I find you inspirational
Ruth

I don't think I can respond with such splendid color and verse as the rest
but this poem was wonderful.

Martie, Yeah, you gotta watch out when the responses are so much better than the original poem. Is't that beautiful?
Thanks for your comments. Glad you enjoyed the poem, my female friend
