~ Just You ~


V1/ Sea-shy sky,

Oceans of fire,

Did'st whisper thee,

My sweet desire.

Ancient hills

Rule streams, so clear,

Bear witness, to

Our love, my dear.


V2/ Vivid sights, of

Themes unseen,

So fair,

We'll share

Lost might-have beens.

Promenading; holding hands,

Our carefree hearts

Make no demands.


V3/ The future's ours,

Your dreams, the stars;

We're stellar scenes,

Venus and Mars.

Duchess of love, greets

Captain of war,

One kiss from you,

I'll fight, no more.


V4/ Roam with me,

Through breathless heights,

Warm sunny days,

Long sultry nights.

Walk with me,

Amongst the flowers,

Share happiness,

I know is ours.


V5/ Strolling free,

Through perfumed meadow,

Let's leave this world,

That you, and I know.

Picnic here,

Under your tree,

There's no one there,

Just you and me.


V6/ Worn tyre swings free

From old, roped winch,

Hides cheeping, bobbing,

Baby finch;

Smoked-salmon, fresh cake,

With Beaujolais;

I'll feed you, as we

Laugh, and play.


V7/ Wild poppies, on

Buttercups, my Daisy,

Shall rest your head,

When you grow lazy,

So sleep your sleep,

My pleasant view,

I'll lay, and

Dream your dreams for you.



THE END

      This is so beautiful and reminds me of Lord Byron's style of writing. Love it.

I believe this may very well be my favorite. The flow and rhythm of your wondrous words makes the heart beat faster delightfully.
