What creature this, that comes in still of night,
Upon the wind, on feathered wings of grace?
'Tis thee mine Rose, in glow of Luna's light,
To soothe the tempest's ire; harsh storms complace.
Mine haven sought within thy satin bloom,
I drift no more upon life's raging seas,
For in thine arms, mine fading light relume,
As Dante's gales, thee calm to gentle breeze.
Fair Rose, my love for thee adamantine,
Shall evermore, within mine heart reside,
As I await once more the vespertine,
Mine harbor sought, upon thy eventide.
Thou art Venus, mine goddess of the night,
O' beauteous bloom, sweet jewel of welkin's light.

Such beauty of words...that none compare, as the beauty of the rose......loved it!

 "Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O,no! it is an ever-fixed mark....William Shakespeare

   Your poetry takes me back beyond the days of recollection, beyond, to a time when love was made with words such as these. The images graceful and adoring, the language delicate, charmed. The atmosphere, one of evening's illumined appeal.
  
"'Tis thee mine Rose, in glow of Luna's light,"

"For in thine arms, mine fading light relume,"

"As I await once more the vespertine,"

You weave magic with such words, such phrasings, Mike. Thank you for writing and sharing this.

Romantic Heart, a rose to thee fair maiden.
Nan, you throw out a good line or two every once and a while also...  *smile*

Wow...I love this style...the images..the eloquence in the words....but its one that I will have to read a few times to savor the full effect.

I look forward to finding more of your work to read
