Land Of Lofty Lovers (poem)

I saw my love again today

Delighting me with her display

And once again I’m swept away

To land lofty lovers do stray


Each flower bears her gentle scent

Each breeze whispered kiss she sent

And for her smile the sun was meant

And for her love this dream was spent


She’s all I think about today

Each heartbeat is a song she sent

And in her eyes my soul was meant

Here was the breath made reason stray


Reality its vicious scent

It yearns to put pain on display

And wishes cast so far away

In hopes our land is spent


Yet somewhere still my thoughts will stray

Those years since my love passed away

And still she’s here this grand display

I saw my love again today

..absolutely adore this title and the words which follow remind me of mid 70's Paul Simon - which is a good thing because he's a terrific songwriter - lake erie time 11:14pm
