The Promise (poem)

Updated on April 5, 2016

This thank you kiss I lay beside you now

A token of the moment we were one

The blushing moon itself must now avow

Our witness to the promise there begun


That I shall love you thus for all our days

And frolic in your beauty all our nights

Our songs of passion will make flowers blaze

Our dance of dreamers’ paradise ignites


What madness falls to pen perhaps to tease

On what foundation rests a heart on fire

What timeless test will catch me at an ease

Is there some ocean quenches such desire


I hope that my delights have found their nest

And pray my love for you will never rest
