             ALL (to me)!
        [when life grows sadder...
          Love grows stronger]
           (for Ms. C. Rose)

I am but a ‘stranger’
to the ways of other men!.....
Dear lady...fine lady...fair rose,
how could they be so cruel?!.....

For:
  You are ALL the promise...
     in a springtime breeze.
  You are ALL the magic...
     in a summer sunrise.
  You are ALL the grandeur...
     in a autumn sunset.
  You are All the wonder...
     in a winter forest.....

And:
  I would rather die...
     than ever prove untrue!
  I can only stand in awe
     to marvel....
     at ALL you made of me!
  You have done it ALL...
     by simply ‘being you’!....

There is a place, where words like lightyears, travel.  Warmed by the sun of yesterday, aglow by the moon of tomorrow.
Never should they be disenchanted by harsh winds, but rather celebrated in the gathering of the fine times a life has lingered.

Great voice.

Oh this is reminiscent of Auden's work. Very well done you have a strong and poignant voice.
Kethry

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown
