Castle Love

The waves, they curl, then crash upon the shore; They run up bubbling froth into the sand. It blinks and sinks, is seen not ever more, Unless there’s one who scoops, with shoveled hand, To feel the wet where there … Continue reading

Traitor me not…

Traitor me not, oh heart my very own. Yea, lead me not astray in realms of “like.” I am but made of flesh and sinew, bone, And sure to break if true love was but “like.” These little “likes” we … Continue reading

You Are The Reason

Love makes the mind keep ‘wake, lets it not sleep; Or, rather, love-in-longing, from down deep. Oh, so deep, so far down distant years, Comes this in me for my whole life-long want. Oh, giant want, freed from iron won’t, … Continue reading

Low Burning

The fire of love burns low tonight, my fair; I read some history, a Shakespeare play, And leave at rest awhile my ardent breast. Yet every other minute it is you Who catch me, and I go off, astray, To … Continue reading

When All The Springs

When all the springs of joy have joined with fire, When body’s breath is mixed with mind’s desire, Then hand and will write pages purged of fate And all love’s words are poems that satiate. Yet I will write me … Continue reading

Time Traveler

Oh who these would-be travelers in time Who’d not go back to witness heights sublime— Brave Phidias shaping stone to his ideal, Homer, singing fiction more than real; Towering Michelangelo at his height, Giving ceilings more than sky hath given … Continue reading

Let Love Grow Slow

Let love grow slow; don’t fear slow pace; Let tears of joy wash sweet your face. What now you hold is pure, pure gold. Let hours pass, let days go by; Retain her words; hear, magnify. Love all minutes; each … Continue reading

On!

Great love is in the world, it gathers force, And all its pining soldiers take for arms Poems and songs and speeches of desire, Plan joyed attacks in straight or side-ways course, With hair in place, well-suited, manned with charms, … Continue reading

Here and There

The wind of love, Sweet, Fair, Around, above, Then you—-there. The bluebirds flew, fair, true, Touched my eyes, And there—-you. Dandelions sprang! Rivers sang! You, where? My hands reach, My lips touch, Imagined you. Oh, here and there, So far … Continue reading

“Violets, come out! Come out!’ They come, as if they hear. There is, there is, there is no doubt That friendly spring is here! Swoln buds on trees get set to pop, So full they are with love; Their love … Continue reading

My Prayer

Oh, let no heaviness ever touch my Sweet; Let sorrow, sadness, gloom, run off and hide. They in themselves must be themselves complete, And never seek with good their ill to bide. Yea, and she is good, sweet, and summ’ry … Continue reading

Fast

My fast-born love for you is warm and strong, But who can say how warm is warm, And who can know how strong is strong? It’s warmer, oh, than a gentle, warm June day That skips in easy comfort right … Continue reading

I call your name…

I call your name through every street in town; You said you lived here; where can you be found? Ten streets are done, only a thousand more. Will hand of mine yet tap your golden door? Now twenty done; poor … Continue reading

Almost

Almost she loves me; almost she almost cares. Almost my name on her lips sweet lends airs To deep thoughts, deeper feelings, deep tone. Pianos of the soul, play on and do not cease Till hundred melodies one deep release! … Continue reading

The World Of Flight

You said, “I was so busy, am busy still.” To read that little message gave me wings; My mind was wings, my fingers, toes, and all, Till rose I up a happy man most tall. Then off to home I … Continue reading

I did me well

I did me well to love you as I did; The light of love so deeply in me hid It lay forgot, or else but faintly shown, And faded out had I left you alone. You roused the slumb’ring depths … Continue reading

Now Come Sweet Fairies

Now come sweet fairies to fly you in your dreams While solemn night is sleeping in your brow. Mayhap a mountaintop of silver-shining beams, Or fount of flowerbells to softly ring you now. Then, up as though awake, coarse gilt … Continue reading

Your lit, full lips in pictures of you shown, Your dark, kind eyes through glasses perfect, clear, Your sweet round nose and gently rounded chin, Are all the features I would like to win, And yet, is there out-left one … Continue reading

Slow and Fast

Comes spring slow; Slightly, buds grow; Opening? No. Does faint green show? Slim line, yellow? Yes. Barely so. Comes Spring slow. Winds quicken, Bringing snow. It melts fast, Away does go. Sun is warm, Temps do rise. Will Spring show … Continue reading
