A repost of an oldy

        The book

Once within an ivy nook,
There lay within a book,
A flower pressed away.
Old and fragile,
Gold with age,
Placed within a page,
To conjure an emphasis,
A moments bliss.
An hour of the heart,
A faded flowers part,
To enchant and decant,
In rapture reminisce,
The forgotten kiss.

Sy,
This is a lovely little poem that you have pulled out of your files. It makes me wonder how many poems you have written and all the treasures that have not yet been shared with others. This is beautiful.
Love ya,
Liz

Dear Elizabeth,
Thank you for the lovely comment. I just finished another interesting poem, but I have already put one on today. So maybe I'll
put it on tomorrow or tonight. Thanks again
Love Sy

Sy... Would that book happen by any chance to be a diary?   I love reading old diaries. Especially when they are so well writen.

I hope this is a memory of your own Sy, I have had a flower pressed away in my diary FOREVER, that my first love gave me....and I can still look at it and remember that innocent love.  Good poem too!

I havenít read a bad one from you yet and this is definitely no exception to that rule.

 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

Nan as an elephant...hehe - trampling us with poetic wisdom!

Sy - I am...just thrilled by this - it is a poem that touches the senses and takes one there - to that moment. Another well done, master poet.

When I was in high school, my "then" high school sweetheart put a leaf in a book to remind her of me....I think it was poison ivy.

All joking aside Sy....this is a wonderfully written poem....I wish I could delve into the world of seriousness some...but I got this affliction (guess it's a little red guy with horns and a pitch fork)that just kinda takes over whenever I get started seriously...You truly have the heart and mind for the real good stuff.....

...and the scent of the reminisce
brings back the moment of the kiss...

as always, I'm enthralled.

I can either form a note
refering to what others quote
or I can say that this poem is wise
because i know the feeling
but what I didn't realize
that your words brings back a lost thought
wrapped up in my memory cloth
Very nice the way you decribe the forgotten kiss.



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

There within the yellow pages
Lay a single rose
Aged to brown, and meaningless
Or some would just suppose
But to her tender, loving heart
The flower meant so much
For in it's fragile petals
Lay the memory of his touch
The book, it held the contents
Of laughter and of tears
Represented by a single rose
That weathered countless years

Inspiring and beautiful Seymore
