Fair Rose, why do thee part at dawn's first light,
As darkness fades, and drifts away the night?
Doth morning star, forewarn thee coming sun,
So with the moon, into the heavens run?
What dost thou fear, what pain shall day reveal,
That causes thee, into the darkness steal?
Doth not thee know, that even in the day,
The stars remain, and in the heavens lay?
The cloak of night, for thee is but facade,
Protecting not, behind high priest's ephod,
Lay bare thy soul, into the light emerge,
And hide thee not, from thee thy demons purge.
For whilst I wait, thou presence in the night,
I yearn soft touch, of Rose in glow of light.

Yes, the stars do not go away during the day. That very thought has never occurred to me.
What a beautiful poem filled with beautiful thoughts.
I enjoyed this

This craft of words, your forte', sir
in obvious perfection
as verse befalls your cherished rose
you wax profound reflection

As I, heart widened, fully flush,
transfixed in soul's submission
now humbly breathe fresh fragrance, thine,
spellbound by such petition

(...other than that, I'm speechless.)

Dear LadyClaire

I too am speechless....this is extremely lovely.  Do keep it up!

Simply lovely ... I wish I had the words for an elegant poetic response, but they escape me.  Will you accept instead my thanks for this vision?

Prosecuted a father for molesting his three year old daughter this morning...  the mother says he is a good father and she wants him home...  was in somewhat of a sour mood (understatement)  came home for lunch and turned on the puter...  thanks for the very kind and gracious statements...  brightened my day...  Thank you all.

This is inspired writing Mike--If only I could write like that I would fit this reply with wonderous words, instead I'll just say wow!

Thank you for the gracious comments.  Cougaryouth, I am afraid I will have to let you in a little secret; takes a wee bit more than words to win a girl's heart.
