Reunion

A crimson evening's garden walk,
When sudden interruption
From low beneath the shadow's stroke
Appeared without production.

Who walks there? Show yourself at once!
I urgently sensed dark danger.
As fully a figure approached the path,
A silent, mysterial stranger.

But drawing nigh with gentle step
And slow in his approaching,
This intruder spoke my name aloud
His intent, 'twas not encroaching.

Is it so? Can it be you, dear person,
Or apparition now before me?
His mindful, urging, searching eyes
Convinced, indeed, implored me.

No, I've not fled this graceful Earth
But am here, bewitching maiden,
To convince you of my heart's true worth,
For your precious trust, 'tis laden.

Oh pulse of Prophet! Oh Seer's sight!
Mere moonglow shall but cower!
Your loveliness haunts the darkest night!
Your essence shames the flower!

His words so wrought with passion's voice,
His hands with appetition,
Upon bare shoulders, awakened moist
My lips in recognition.

I feared we surely would be heard
Through our trembling, tangled tones.
"My dear one, I have searched the night..."
His whispers meeting my moans.

My darling, Dawn's Companion, please
Forgive me, my desires.
Your eyes have beckoned, your body and soul,
Love, your fragrance feeds my fires.

My need to hold your warming,
Welcoming form unto my chest
Has driven my ambition, Sweetness,
And upward forced my fervent quest.

Come let me share sweet bliss with you
My gracious garden Glory,
But only grant my lips' release to
Bestow you with this story.

The tale of how these lovely lanterns ~
Your eyes ~ kept me on guard.
And have brought me finally home, dear one,
Forever your servant, and ever, your bard.

Dear LadyClaire

The first time I read, I thought the poem was wonderful.  Haven't changed that opinion, I do like the font change...

Again you`ve stoped my heart
With the grace that`s in your style,
Im lost for words once again
So I`ll just say thank you
Meadowmuse,
Thank you for the Smile

Very Nice Read Meadowmuse

Mike...thanks for the approving nod.

RufffRyder...and thank you, for your sweet response. It's good to know this brought a smile to you.  

Martie...thank you, Martie, for letting me know you liked it. (Complete in thought? now THAT is definitely a compliment, as that is an ongoing struggle for me.)

As I never seen love before wrapped in poetry
Here it's done with such excellency
Awe and sigh are inked forever on the screen
There is just love and nothing in between
Such lovely and enchanting piece
L. and S.P. ((((you))))  

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

Claire~
I find everything you write
breathtaking.
This one calls for oxygen !
So inspired are your works.
A delicacy of phrase.

Oh my what grace I found in this.....

Loved this line..

"Your loveliness haunts the darkest night!
Your essence shames the flower!"

Lovely to the last line

In a word, Claire, I would have to say:

"suberb"

--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...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Seymour...thank you, dear poet...no other words are needed.

Helmut...maybe there is just a little in between (like an overly~active imagination). Thank you for such sweet discourse.
L. and S.P. (((you)))

Denise...thank you so much...I'm glad to know you enjoyed reading this!  

Marge...thank you Marge. I was influenced by a breathtaking sort of mood when I wrote it.   I'm glad you liked.

First Knight...thank you, dear sir, for letting me know you enjoyed it with such a gracious response.

Kess...ah, thank you Kess. Coming from you, one word is all it takes to enlighten me.

A rose to you dear Claire we send
your thoughts are so contageous
Their very essence takes our hands
and walks us through your pages
Every time you send a thought
we've not been disappointed
Your pen sends birds and butterflies
and keeps us captivated
