Oh, Darling, put down that cup and paper,
dusk is calling us to the old porch swing,
come now, as the skyline gently tapers
towards Venus’s wink and Saturn’s rings. 

Oh, Darling, I know how the days blur
within the uproar of obligation,
life is confusing and we both concur
that lost moments demand navigation. 

Oh, Darling, I wish to sit by your side,
perhaps we will talk, perhaps just listen
to tender night wooing the moon, his bride,
as a vow of stars around her glisten. 

Oh, Darling, I want my hand in yours,
the silence we share, sweet serenity,
enough of the world, enough of these chores,
let us surrender to simplicity.

Oh, Darling, thank you for this perfection,
slowly we rock, tilt the heaven’s above,
I'm grateful for this lifelong affection,
the calm of trust and the balm of our love.

    Cyndi, you never cease to amaze me with your flawless form, rhythm, rhyme, and grace! This poem played like a movie in my mind. AND you wrote this in addition to Norwegian Wood! Great job! Congrats on your win in my contest :)

    Soothing poem--put me at ease from word one and more so from there--if anyone were to ask me who from the soup would you like to have a "beer" with---you'd be on my short list.
