Initials on a Tree

I sign your initials on an old tree And surround it with a heart of desire I want the world out there to come and see The world needs to see our heart completely That’s been put on this tree with love and fire I sign your initials on an old tree People want to view this tree tenderly It’s not like the tree sits on any mire I want the world out there to come and see Heart is formed with love eventually The tree should never be placed on a pyre I sign your initials on an old tree Formed are letters of our names perfectly All the letters put on smoothly not dire I want the world out there to come and see The world can see our kind heart lovingly Our love together shall never expire I sign your initials on an old tree I want the world out there to come and see

    Congratulations Russell, you have two wins in this contest. Thanks so much for your feedback on my villanelle, without your guidance my poem would not have been chosen.

    Always very tender and endearing with your pieces Russel. Very exquisitely written... I always find those little heart-shaped markings a worthwhile find, especially when you're not expecting it.

    You're a brave man to attempt a "villanelle" but everything came up roses! What a great write, my good man! Bravo! Here's wishing you much luck in Anne's contest!

    This is so great and amazing my dear friend Russell! This is absolutely a brilliant idea on how to do this very nice form which I think a hard one to do for me. I love it so much! This is a winner for me. I'll keep it in my favourite treasure list if you don't mind. Thank you so much and Have a blessed Easter Seasons and a grace-filled Palm Sunday today! love and big hugs, Leonora
