I

From forth the heavens high above,
Apollo's lute sings songs of love,
Thy welkin charms in Luna's light,
Outshine the stars of heaven's night,
I reach my hand to touch thy face,
And pull you close in love's embrace,
In harmony to muses' lyres,
We dance as one to goddess choirs,
In mine arms, fair Terpsichore,
I dance on clouds, 'cross heaven's floor,
A moonlit sky, a summer's eve,
But then the dawn, and dost dance leave,
With light of day, the music halts,
And so doth end, our lover's waltz,
As music fades, so fades romance,
To wait again, night's passion dance.

II

Feel the music in your heart,
Touching softly, t'will impart,
Upon the soul, heartfelt romance,
Two joined as one, in sensual dance,
Passions coursing through the night,
Swaying softly, in Luna's light,
In song's reprise, love's symphony,
I sought my love, please come to me,
Sweet songs embrace, deep satin kiss,
I sought, I found, my mortal bliss,
But then the dawn, into the night,
The music fades in morn's first light,
On final note, so ends the dance,
As dancers wait for love's next chance,
To turn away the lance of pain,
And dance again, the sweet refrain.

III

Strains of Gershwin soothe the night,
With songs of love, Eros' delight,
Music kisses on the soul,
As passion's note, our hearts control,
Silence broken by sensual dance,
Of two entwined in song's romance,
Trembling as the harpist's string,
As from the heavens, muses sing,
Dulcinea, come to me,
Together through eternity,
In mine arms shall ever sway,
Throughout the night, 'til break of day,
And with first light, the dance is done,
Until once more the setting sun,
O' how I hunger for the night,
To dance once more, in heaven's light.

In the night
you hold in dance
this love so full
of sweet romance
I feel the passion
in the refrain
romance the dark
then love remains

This poem is beautiful Mike.  You are so gifted!

Of a moment on a terrace,
midnight's music high and dark
with the night's arms folded 'round me
on this journey, I embark

A beautiful poem, Mike...sends me there.

I felt like I was on an english moor listening to someone read from a wonderfully old leather bound novelette.
Very rich!!

Thank you all so much for the comments.  I have had some comments in the past that some do not enjoy my archaic style, so I truly aprreciate your responses. Maybe I was just born a few centuries too late... *smile*
again.. thank you.

Don't want to offend ya Walt, might ask ya out for a beer, but I think a Walt waltz is not in the offing.  Have a good 'un.

Many of us were born in the wrong time, but nevertheless we do persevere...and your fine piece here shows that very, very well.  Keep this up, and you will have all of the hearts melting.  Thank you.

Wonderful!

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!
