Land Of Lofty Lovers (poem)

Updated on August 19, 2014

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
