My name you softly whisper to me, Love,
“Come take my hand, come share a dance with me”
Beneath star-studded canopy above
In dreams you sing to me unendingly.

You sweep me off my feet into the past
And carry me to days of long ago
To times of stardust charm not meant to last
Those magic scenes to me you kindly show.

In warm embrace your arms around me fold
And tenderly you kiss my tear-stained face
“Your treasured memories I’ll safely hold
And guard them well for you from time’s erase.”

And in the commonplace of each new day
New memories you weave along the way.







 Denise

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Gentle Lady, your words resound with truth and tenderness.  Well done.  

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

beautiful words and I won't even show my ignorance by saying it took me awhile to figure out what personification meant in the context of a poem... but got it now...
guess I better start going to class...
anyway... wonderful poem.

Thanks Mike. I'd been using it but not realizing that I was!  So I guess class can be a good thing! Thanks again for your always kind comments!

Denise the first thing I did was 'sigh.'
And I will agree with Hoot there, it speaks to me too! Well done!
