Missed the Boat

She sits in the old rocking chair
Threads of silver in her golden hair
Alone in the glow of candle light
She rocks so gently in the night

Outside the autumn leaves do fall
As shadows dance upon the wall
Crystal tears in eyes of china blue
Fall for the love she never knew

He came to shore that summer day
His schooner anchored in the bay
And with a glance her knees grew weak
She lost her voice and could not speak

For there he stood so tall and lean
The handsome man in all her dreams
And he broke her heart that summer day
When he said goodbye and sailed away

    by the way, this was a lovely one too. It looks like nobody ever commented on it. I can only imagine all the wonderful writing you did that nobody has yet seen. dang!

    elaine, I don't know if you are around to see this, but I am having a contest right now, not really a contest but just a showing of fave poems. One of yours I had faved was A winter Rose, a sonnet. Sure would enjoy seeing it on my winners list, but it will fill up fast. I miss you here. Luv, Andrea
