I yearn to Whisper Yes


I yearn to whisper yes to you
under a tree somewhere in the old south
under a willow tree perhaps
who’s tears drift slowly cleanly
layering my hair in green
and you with scarlet eyes sunset lit
would sing to me
a deep and true melody
a sigh that lingers against the hair
touch of tribute to the curve that bares
the loving night
a harp would be in cicada concert
with my breathe
and stars would peek
and moonlight linger soft
against the alabaster thigh
of forever
for I yearn for you
to close you into my warmth
to whisper yes
somewhere under a tree
in the old south



 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

With scarlet eyes, sunset lit,
This is a beautiful poem, that line was my favorite!  


 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Except for wonderful words, good thoughts and excellent imagery, this ain't so much!  

Another wonderful work, Martie.

"Gone with the Wind" comes to mind. Nicely written...set's the mood willing to unwind. Romance, Oh how I love the sound here in the air. With southern comfort and it's flair.
  


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

Beautiful, Martie.  Sounds like Charleston to me!  "and stars would peek and moonlight linger soft against the alabaster thigh
of forever".  Beautiful, I loved that!


 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
--W.E. Henley

Martie,
This makes me want to head south and find the nearest willow tree~ Martie, this is so romantic. Must have come from a romantic heart and the pen of an exceptional poet.
Fantastic!

I have never been to the south but it seemed the place to stage this romantic interlude.  Someday I will travel there and....well maybe....

Thank you all for your wonderful comments!

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Martie, for not having been to the South, you've certainly captured the feeling of a romantic Southern night, from the cicadas to the sunset. The physical and emotional allure this lovely piece implies tugs at the reader's mind. Liked it very much!
