Best Elizabeth Wesley Poems

+ Fav Poet


Blinded by a burning sun
Spellbound by the moon;
Beguiled by your tender kiss
Mesmerized too soon.

You looked at me and cast your spell
You took my breath away;
I thought that I could never live
If you didn't come each day.

In haste these moments come to be
In haste they soon will pass;
For passions then that filled my soul
Convert to splintered glass.

The flame that once burned in my heart
Is now a fading ember;
And when I look at you once more
That flame I can't remember.

Was on vacation, missed you all! :)

    Hi Lizzie, been a while since I visited the soup but glad I did to receive your comment but mostly to check out and meditate on your excellent poem. IN poetic fashion you have once again spelled out a fact of human emotional frailty. You have created another success for yourself in your ability to mirror reality in and with your words so clearly as to let others see it in themselves ... like me! Loved it and so enjoy reading your poetry. My friend returned your book with more praise for it.

    Hope you had a great vacation. Im glad your back in action. The flame that once burned in my heart Is now a fading ember; And when I look at you once more That flame I can't remember I love these lines.

    Few people know the meaning. Of rhyme but you do very well.

    Sounds like young love, Lizzie. Sometimes young love, though thwarted, lasts a lifetime. Much better the "fading ember," eh? Enjoyed, and from experience. Love, Dave

    It's sad when love fades out to sea. The echoes, we can't hear. And memories get wiped away with sadness in a tear. But morning has it's way each day and let's us live anew. I'll bet this guy is still saying that he remembers you.

    Thought you might like to check out a one line rewrite on my Unguided tour poem. I was able to double rhyme like you like. :) I appreciate your comments very much.
