From Within Earth's Red Blooms, Love Quickly Flew

These two poems composed to honor this truly great poet, Elinor Wylie.... (1.) Heaven Smiles And Its Light Awaits Icy winds have died, winter fled Hope has sung, Spring has sprung Love and promise have wed new life's radiant glow has brung music to wake the dead. Faded are snows that graced the trees white colors that adorned forest glens far from seas Nature's gifts, its dear christened born cast from Love's seeded pleas. Icy winds have died, winter fled Hope has sung, Spring has sprung Love and promise have wed new life's radiant glow has brung music to wake the dead. As Life and Love, partner with Fate. Heaven smiles and its Light awaits. Robert J.

From Within Earth's Red Blooms, Love Quickly Flew Of those sweet tender kisses-- I recall Images that set fiery flames a'leaping Warming hearts in truest love did swiftly fall While Cupid through keyhole was a'peeping From within earth's red blooms love quickly flew As both yellow moon, twinkling stars did glow Our eager hearts and eyes meeting we knew Chained in golden paradise sent to grow, In romance wedded to be great treasure Nights of bliss to be our glittering gems Time setting pure joy well beyond measure We to become intertwining rose stems, Flowers shining in garden of true love Two cast into one, by Heavens above.

(1.) Heaven Smiles And Its Light Awaits, beautifully done. Spring awakens a great deal, wonderful. (2.) From Within Earth's Red Blooms, Love Quickly Flew, love this line, "While Cupid through keyhole was a'peeping"; "Chained in golden paradise sent to grow, In romance wedded to be great treasure"; beautiful imagery. Wonderful, intertwining imagery at the end, as well.

Thank you my friend. It to me is a daunting task to write a poem to honor each of these chosen poets. As I proceed in the series, each new poem created to honor that chosen poet gets harder to create. I guess maybe such fatigue is normal, or else it is just old age showing its usual weakening of the brain/mind.. My having been ill recently doesnt help.. God bless...

Thank you my friend. I do my best to spend many hours studying each chosen poet. And not just their poetry but also their biography/personal life from birth to death of those that are no longer living. God bless..

Thank you my friend. I hope to write ten in this series, yet at the moment I am inclined to stop after completing number 5.. As each additional dedication in a series builds up such angst in me . The pressure to write the dedication poems at a good enough level to actually dare use them just keep getting greater. Stopping to perhaps later resume seems to be the right answer to that. God bless..

Beautiful work my friend! You are so gifted, I hope you realize that. Thank you for sharing your brilliant mind.

Thank you my friend. So great to see that my doing these tribute series is received and enjoyed by my fellow poets here at the Soup. As each one is -to me-- a very hard task. And oft so very time consuming. Yet so very truly satisfying once finally completed.. God bless...

Robert, both poems are very beautiful, it was interesting to read about this poet that I never heard of, she had such a tangled life but wrote beautiful poems, maybe that is the answer to finding the depth needed to write poetry _Constance
