Star Light Star Bright

Slowly ascending the steps towards, once upon a times 
Familiar front doors; which seem as although, but yesterday 
When her newness held such vibrancy; colours be their laughter  
Love, filling these hallways ? Leading into her many different rooms...
Some were hidden it seems; passages perhaps a vacancy sign, now posted 
Unto a curtainless window, within my heart ? Spring left melting his last 
Winter's remnants this snow, from amid it's blizzard; winds whispering about 
Silent trees flowers, bending of such their wake ? A single solitary rose; sitting atop 
An empty table; past her tomorrow's glass; aside love's note their beckoning, kiss..
Crowned time's street; leaving his bottle in champagne at that, the threshold ? 
Wrapped and this a red bow; while turning to make one's way; beyond her rainbows.

Fantastic writing!...Thank you so much for your kind visit to my "Night Owl" poem. John, your company would be most welcome, seated beside Her on any moonlit night. :) Love, Kelly

    Actually Catie. This is all a lie. I made it all up. The 866 number is a phone sex number. Ah, I was just trying to make myself look important.
