When Petals Fall
~*Marge Tindal*~

When petals from the arbor fall
floating softly to the ground
May they gather fragrance of you
~* in velveted sweet surround

Crushed beneath light footsteps
releasing memory's recall
I will walk among your fragrance
~* when petals from the arbor fall

Trailing trellised beauties
Roses clinging to the vine enthrall
Letting go their sweetness
~* when petals from the arbor fall

Gather fragrance while you may
Roses bloom beyond the wall
Returning on perfumed delight
~*  when petals from the arbor fall


*Inspired by my wonderful friend
Elizabeth Santos .. AGAIN ! *
'I don't know what I'll do
when those petals fall.'

An inspired piece, I must say,
A brilliant poem, I must add,
I am humbled and stupefied, I wish to say,
I think I should just keep quiet.


Marge, this is beatuful and pictureque, I could feel the petals floating, silently, gently...

regards, sudhir.

 Hey you, out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light.
Don't give in without a fight.
Hey you, out there on your own,
Sitting naked by the phone, would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall,
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm coming home....

by Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) - The Wall

Marge - so sweet and smooth - your cousing isn't Suthern (Comfort), is it?  This poem is very well constructed.  Did you intend this style when you started writing it, or did the stlye come to you as you wrote?  That happens to me a lot, so I was wondering if it hits you that way, too.

Marge, this is lovely! I am so sorry not to have emailed you these couple of days...
My email is not working   and I couldn't even get into Passions to tell you before now.
I feel so bad but I can't do anything until my email is up.
It appears that I can recieve but an error occurs whenever I try to send.  
As soon as it is up and running again I shall email! Got one in the out box for you already actually!
Love ya, mentor of mine!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

I'm glad you asked -
the 'construction' was complete the
moment I read Liz's reply on her poem
'If You Should Wander Forth' ...
Inspiration took over and it just fell
to the page in a heartbeat.
That is the way most of my poetry happens.
I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Lil' Lizzie~
Thanks, my buddy.
You'll get that e-mail fixed ..
In the meantime ... I'll just miss ya'.

Always glad to see you in the replies.

Walt~
Why, thank you, my friend.

Tracie~

Marge!, you've done it again. I thank you for weaving the words and Elizabeth giving you the inspiration.  

 God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown

I certainly appreciate your comments.
Lizzie and I do seem to make a good
team in much of our thinking.

Elizabeth is a spirit that comes my way often.
Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed it.
