Lovers’ Fields (poem)

What blossoms flowers put upon display

To add a touch of beauty to the air

In fields where lovers come to spend their day


If I were now to reach what would you say

Will I still see the sun or bleak despair

What blossoms flowers put upon display


A chance perhaps a moment just to stray

Who knows what special memories may flare

In fields where lovers come to spend their day


My heart is offered up to pave the way

To splendors which your beauty will make rare

What blossoms flowers put upon display


And if your answer causes some dismay

A dream of sadness will be waiting there

In fields where lovers come to spend their day


So take my hand and lay all else away

That for this while the two of us may share

What blossoms flowers put upon display

In fields where lovers come to spend their day

Aw, this is beautifully sweet! Can we have as many first loves as we'd like. What a feeling of love discovering itself! Wonderful Martin, you took me away.

In the field and a kiss to remember their moment by looks so secretive

Hi Mh, I hope all is well, just checking as I went to bed early last night, and thought I would catch up this day, but I do not see a new hub(s) from you. That is okay, as everyone needs at least one night off :)

There is a bittersweetness to this lovely poem, Martin. Young love stays with us, always. I think it is the measure of all future loves. Beautiful and poignant words. :-)
