Oh tallest lonely fir
leaning sad across the sky -
Iíll be the cloud you dream against
when darkest winterís nigh.
~ ~ ~
When scented summer sunís memoirs are haunting you;
and long-gone clear skied moon glows come taunting you;
Iíll be the quiet brushing of a fragrant springing breeze,
with warmth surrounding you after the winterís solemn freeze.
~ ~ ~
Iíll be the night owlís breathy wings that gently fan your limbs,
calling colorfully to you my loving natureís hymns.
Iíll touch you with the freshness of the sweetly dropping rain,
and cover you, hover over you, to shield you from pain.
~ ~ ~
Iíll be the tender snowflakesí melt against your graceful form,
loving you, protecting you from any future harm.
Iíll be the song thatís lilting you, with fingers of silent light,
trailing over mountainsí dawn to caress you after night.
~ ~ ~
Oh tallest, lonely fir, leaning into the sorrowed wind;
My loveís come much too far to ever possibly rescind.
Iíll be your wildest gyspy in the zephyrís moving dance.
Iíll whisper fine each honeyed line in our finest romance.
~ ~ ~
I know your roots, so deeply spiraled into your earthís sorrow.
You sigh that there may never be any bright tomorrow.
But when those rootsí fouled nourishments do finally softly cease;
then you will find, I know, at last, your gracious quiet peace.
~ ~ ~
Oh tallest lonely fir
leaning sad across the sky -
Iíll be the cloud you dream against
when darkest winterís nigh.

(Love poem to my darling husband.)

†The spiritual wind that holds survivors aloft, plants the seeds from which bloom new hope ... R.J.G.

Oh, what gentle breezes blow your love about.

'Iíll be your wildest gyspy in the zephyrís moving dance.'

This is sooooo eloquent.
Your poetry NEVER fails to excite my senses.
Love to you and Dale.

Rosemary..
This is so touching.
Such a deep love and passion I see here.
Caressing and protecting one who seems to be in pain.
I read it again and again, brought a few tears
to my eye.
Wonderfuly writen!

Dear Martie, Marge and Irie,  I can't tell you how touched I am that you "heard" my feelings, and understood what I was trying to convey.  (And liked the poem too!) That's  wonderful.  Thank you!
