Leaving On A Jet Plane

Oh the wondrous glow of an English Rose
seductive she glides along foreign skies,
words that are spoken in this tongue she chose
whence where she will dwell amidst sunlit sighs.
But what of the love she doth leave behind
subdued in the humus of his desire,
a stringent veil of secrecy so blind
creates a fabric entity of fire.
The candle burns low his autumn of life
when stood at the gate of fearful goodbyes,
upon a tropical romance so rife
chance an English fragrance with Spanish eyes.
Still through woeful tears he scans a Jet plane
waits thereof her return to ease his pain....

    This could have been written a 100 years ago. The only thing that gives the time away is the jet plane. Good one Harry!

    Beautiful and profound... "a stringent veil of secrecy so blind creates a fabric entity of fire.". the love, and the missing in this poem is palpable, and so they are in many of your other work..I absolutely love your thoughts!

    oops, I just realized it was TIm who made the comment to me that John Denver wrote this song title. Did you know that too?

    Harry, I did not realize John Denver wrote this one. HE was an amazing singer. I remember when I tried to learn guitar, my teacher gave me so many john denver songs to try, and it made me appreciate him even more. What a tragic death he had.
