Posy Petals

The remnants left of posy red
Once pressed between a page
Now shriveled down to petal dust
Recalls another age
A posy dead, yet rosy red
Still dwells within the eye
That we may draw itís beauty from
A memory by and by

What joy remains from laughterís tune
Immersed in tender tears?
Melodic lilts of pleasure hymns
Forgotten through the years
A treasure box of reminisce
That opens now and then
As chiming echoes of the past
Come forth from deep within

What now endures of love thatís lost,
But tastes of bittersweet?
The sorrow of a starless night
Clings on, as memories creep
More vibrant though, the pulsing bliss
That lulls within the vein
And gushes forth when music strikes
A chord of bitter pain

The dreams still drenched in posy flush
Of loversí ruby days
And laughter churned by simple joys
We grabbed along the way
Are sweet remains of love thatís gone
Still rustling in the breeze
The lasting strains of passion notes
Among the willow trees

And posy petals crushed within
The mellowed paper leaves

Elizabeth  I hope you don't mind if I print a copy of this poem off. I loved this.

Beautiful poem, wonderfully written also it is about petals (one of my favourite words and images).

its hard to decide which i find most enchanting about this one
the rhyme and flow are perfect and the imagery is amazing,
then there is the tender bittersweet
emotions that run thru it...
enchanting indeed.
perfect way to end my day...
sweet dreams lizzie
me thinks me will dream of petals
