Lovers’ Afternoon (Poem)

When stardust mixes mid the moon

When kisses cast make lovers swoon

When hearts unite to form a tune

Then is a lovers’ afternoon


When words don’t have a thing to say

When even dreams seem far away

When eyes are havens souls there stray

Then it becomes a love’s mid-day


Then passions rise beyond the moon

Then all they knew now far away

Then whispered winds cause minds to stray

When love is in its afternoon


Then even reason dare not say

Then there again what made them swoon

Then heavens hear a timeless tune

When lovers bask amid mid-day


When will I kiss love’s afternoon

When will you teach my heart your tune

When in your arms I’m bound to swoon

Then stardust mixes mid the moon
