Magic

Enchantment of magic’s sweet passion has bound me
With minutes and hours I now must reclaim;
Spellbound, love calls to the spirits around me
And drifts into dreams at the sound of his name.

The breath of his memory awakens from slumber;
I hear the soft whispers of a loving refrain
That stirs in my heart such an infinite hunger
With incense to scent each exquisite strain.

The face of my love comes back in a vision
With sounds of his voice in the soft grey gloom;
In a twilight of stars when the scent is Elysian
I wait for him under the plum tree in bloom.

So hushed is the flute of a love song enchanted
With music he played when his mouth was stirred;
 I now hear the song so tenderly haunted
Invading my dreams with all that I heard.

As green leaves and blossoms twine and are braided
The strings of my heart have come undone;
When the lush of the green vine is woven unfaded
The binding of my heart with his is as one.

    An exquisite cadence, with sweetly scripted rhyming and imagery. A poem so beautifully conceived. Lovely language and sentiment. :)

    Haunting is the word. "Love calls to the spirits around me." From this point the piece takes on a rather supernatural charm. You have woven all the senses together beautifully, including a sixth sense. Love, daver

    When beauty gets blended with melody and music, it creates a magic of its own. Your poem is the result of a magic created by you by blending beauty and melody with a music of its own. The Magic is beautiful beyond words my friend. It is going to be a fav. of mine. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra...Elizabeth wesley.

    Ew, I used "fantastic" twice in close proximity. Make one of them "wonderful!"
