Summer's Glories

This is something i wrote years ago... i'll share the background if someone who doesn't already know asks about it. for now, i'll just post it and open the window on my soul a little further...

Summer's Glories

As doves in flight do sing their summer song,
And blist'ring sun upon my soul does shine,
For thee to hold my heart, dear love, I long,
And tenderly for you to make me thine.

The lazy days so long, the nights too short,
With dancing music floating through the air,
I wait for thee to cherish and to court,
Your purity of soul, your face so fair.

The reddish flair of morning light at dawn,
And silv'ry sparkle of the past night's dew,
A golden sunset glitt'ring on the swan,
These glories don't compare, my love, to you.

I look upon the brilliant hues of summer's dress,
And long with love for winter's icy cold caress.

    My Love,
    no matter how many times you tell me of the background of that poem, I will never grow tired of hearing it. I am aware that it was pulling teeth to get it onto paper, but I love it just the same because it is you.
    I love you.

    and I'm sure everyone can figure out who this is :)

    That's one potent piece of verse. Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for the blessing received in your sharing it here.

    I've linked to your blog from my home page. It's taken me a while, apologies for that but I've spent a lot of time today rejigging the look and feel and adding in lots of links.

    Again, thanks for such a wondrous poem. Write more. It should be illegal for you to do otherwise.

    Andy, my heartfelt thanks for the compliment. and i appreciate the link. i wrote this years ago, and it is the only poem i've ever written... words have never flowed easily for me...

    i said in the original post that i would share the background if asked, though i'm not sure if such high praise counts... or if i am worthy of it...

    sorry to all, getting lost in my thoughts. i need to gather them before i lose my mind all together. for now i am going to post this, if i can find the rest of my thoughts, i will add them. i just don't want to loose what has already been recorded by waiting.

    Darling, I think you forgot to add the rest of your thoughts... which likely went somewhere along the lines of telling them where it came from and why you wrote it. :)
