My Wish



Another day's end,
beginning
as any other,
but with a few fallen words
the world is changed
and we are changed within it.
Defenseless,
perhaps,
to the movement, the motive,
the motion.
Would only that I could
draw you
to me
and let the words
begin anew.


Dear LadyClaire

You are so good at those few fallen words that say so much, so well.

Oh, Claire~
This has a quality of sheer beauty.
You amaze me with your easy delivery
of these lovely lines.
Talented poetess, I admire your work.

Claire,
What a great poem.  Really hits home with me.  Amazing how a few words can change everything, isn't it?  I too wish the words could begin anew.......excellent line.

There have been many times in my life that I have wished this. Now, because of experience, I have learned how to choose my words carefully so not to regret them afterwards.

Excellent poem Claire.  


 When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shodows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face...

A few words can indeed change a life..I know that well.  Moving, deep, and wonderful words, as always Claire.

Words in a poem that describe so well the power of our words.  Thanks for the reminder and the poem.

Thank you all, in earnest, for reading...and for letting me know that there was something in this writing that touched you.
Also.... Please forgive me for not replying individually, but I haven't the luxury of time tonight to do so. Oh how I wish I could just sit at my armoire for hours and read and respond to all the poetry you folks share here! What wonder and enjoyment that would afford me! I am hoping to work my way back here later in the weekend, and will try to read as much as possible.
Many hugs to each of ((((you)))) tonight, everyone... and thanks again...

~ Claire

Oh Claire..!

I'm not going to let this one get by RJ, her sweet AT&T line isn't feeling so good today so I'm going to have to just keep you up there till she's back on the air. You cought my heart on this one baby...

Always, dale & rosemary
