Interlude

I walked by the light of the silver moon
Where winds blow and aspens quiver;
Where the streams sing an amusing tune
To the far away river.

This is a time for tears and song
A tender touch and love's sweet laughter;
Could the night hold us too long
If we love more in the hereafter?

Under the aspens shadows linger
Unafraid of the moon's silver light;
Stretching forth her long white finger
To touch the blue shadows of night.

Hold me close in the whispers of gloom
That veil your dear form and face;
As phantom arms reach out to entomb
Two lovers in a cold embrace.

    I'm left wondering if the lovers in the story are actually the moonlight and shadow, super piece really enjoyed, even if I missunderstood :)

    I am out of words of praise now, I think i've used up the dictionary praising your work. Gosh! you just dont give up, and slam right back with a superb piece such as this just when one feels you cant get any better. Keep it up Liz.

    a very impressive poem once again. Elizabeth. You seem to have an inexhaustable well of them. You really should try and throw in a bad one sometimes you know! ; ) loved it Liz

    the embrace is cold, but the heart is warm, and perhaps love will survive in another dimension, thoughts of eternal love beyond this plain comes to mind. great write. steven

    I guess I better start by saying how much I enjoyed Tim Brumley's comment since I Replied to his comment but didn't say anything. NOW! The tender touch of resignation. In evening hour's indignation. Where nature sweeps the souls parade. And Godly angel's come to aid. The moon will tell us all we know. And show two lovers where to go. Beyond the stars up in the sky. Is where two hearts won't need ask why.

    This is indeed a lovely piece, Elizabeth - I especially love the third stanza

    Very romantic Liz! I'm impressed with how your mood shifts from one poem to the next with no lingering traces from one to the other within the short period of time between them. This suggests that they were not written from ink distilled from the fire of the moment, but rather from the ashes blown by the winds of the imagination. What wild imaginings cry from behind the vanguard of what we see here? Cut loose the tethers of worldly things and fly to where neither larks or even eagles trod.

    The moon's long finger, those phantom arms with their cold embrace; I hope your two lovers get some heat going now. Wait for the hereafter. Beautifully writ.
