A Love-Note of Blank Verse.

Palatial surroundings for a princess.
Palatial surroundings for a princess.

Everlasting Love

It seems that if I´d like to, I could be a Queen,

You already think I am Princess.

Is it what I´d like, to wear a weighty crown?

And set a good example---- never show a frown.

I know, to you, that I could be a Queen.

One step up from where you see me now.

But is it what I need or want?

Is it even real?.


You see me as a Princess.

I treasure you for that,

But elevation----- greater heights-----?

I fear could spell disaster.


What we have is beautiful.

Everlasting love.

Expectations raised often reek of failure.

We've seen fire and water,

We've danced in the rain.

We've seen lights so bright.... they dazzle...

And darkness , deep that could have dragged us down.

Or torn us wide apart.,

Separated our hearts.

But No!. Through Hell and Heaven,

Always we have made it.

A princess and her lover,

is what you insist we are.

I have no need of further elevation,

Have no desire to become Queen,

I relish all the places we have been,

The many hours we have spent together,

All the stormy weather,

And the love that saw us through.

What time we have left ,contents me as I am.

I have no need of more than you.

And being your Princess.


As l age , and so do you, methinks this is still how you see me.
As l age , and so do you, methinks this is still how you see me.

Dim, I would love to write more, but our power is flickering with a major storm blowing through. This is lovely work, but then I expect nothing less from such an accomplished writer. Blessings to you my friend.

What lovely poetry. I especially liked...

"What time we have left ,contents me as I am.

I have no need of more than you..."

There is gentle humility and deep love in these words so beautifully expressed.

Dim, I liked this very much. It flowed well. The words rolled off the tongue and there wee many surprizing word choices. Nicely done.
