Arthur A very personal poem that struck a chord. If this be true,please don't choose to leave her where she lay - allow her love to embrace your heart. She will warm you in the night and will be with you through the days, crying and maybe even smiling with you, as your life continues to unfold. Lynda
This lovely poem has an old-world feel and a tone of poignancy in its form and expression. It also has a lyrical quality which makes me want to grab a lute and start strumming a melody to your lyrics. The imagination boggles...there I am, a minstrel, sitting at the foot of the throne of King Henry VIII strumming and humming this song.
Gosh! I'm getting carried away. You are to blame for writing such evocative lines!! :-)
