the poetry of love
the poetry of love | Source


words flutter in breezes

lofting themselves

on currents of desire

as lovers parade their thoughts

among the leaves

always leaving the sigh

for tomorrow--


De sites ravissants
La campagne se couvre,
Et notre oeil y découvre
Des fleurs, des bois, des champs,
Et d’épaisses feuillées,
Où de tendres amants
Promènent leurs pensées.

With places of delight
The countryside is filled,
And our eyes see there
Flowers, woods, fields,
And dense foliage,
Where tender lovers
Parade their thoughts.


murmuration sweet

within the language of love

as dryads and satyrs

form roots intertwined

whispering.
