Best Elizabeth Wesley Poems

+ Fav Poet


There is no more I need to know
We're lost in the night;
Washed in the candle glow
Of shimmering light.
In this moment longings flare
The time is now;
So much we have to share.
Hear the night wind as it sings
It fans the fire;
Remove your things.
The darkness dances and dips
The firelight flickers and falls
From your toes to your lips 
As shadows skim the walls.
