A Lover's Duet

The farmer's pond was still and dark
the boat was small and light
two lovers they did disembark
their pleasure to excite,
all on a summer's night.

He rowed them out and let them float
into his arms she came,
the dense pine cloaked, kept them remote
two lover's sought their claim,
their passions so inflamed.

She felt him smile, as off he leapt
from boat to waist high lea,
he beckoned her into his keep
a groom and his beauty,
all night's passions to foresee.

On the soft sand, the fertile land
he pledged his troth to she,
as maid and man blessed the soft sand
with raucous revelry 
lovers in harmony.

    I agree with your observation that translating thoughts from a second language is an ordeal. Although I write and have published my books of poems in two languages, but believe me, I don't translate my thoughts. I think in the language I write. The thoughts that come in my mind in Urdu I write in Urdu language and this applies to my English writings as well. In July this year my poems in English were published in USA by Createspace of Amazon titled The Rainbow of Dreams. Regards. -Mohammad

    This is an enchanting love poem -so full of rythm and romance. Highly captivating. I am glad I read it. Thanks Debbie for your comments on my poem The Cry of Heart as well as your kind explanation. The word 'fries' was not used as noun. It was used for rhyming reason to convey the meaning of 'burns'. French fries may be common in eating culture in USA. But this was not in the remotest corner of my mind while writing the word. Love and regards. -Mohammad
