In Celtic Shadows: Collaboration with Mike

The shadows lengthen as comes Celtic night, you are in my arms at the end of day, my eternal beauty, my guiding light. We shall be together 'fore soft twilight To you I run without pause or delay The shadows lengthen as comes Celtic night. Love in our souls as our minds take to flight, lost in your eyes, love we'll never betray, my eternal beauty, my guiding light. With emotions soaring to such great height I yearn to watch the sun's last drowning ray The shadows lengthen as comes Celtic night In the gloaming of our passion's delight, from our love's blooming we never shall stray, my eternal beauty, my guiding light. Your romantic writings always ignite this great love our hearts tenderly convey The shadows lengthen as comes Celtic night my eternal beauty, my guiding light. Thank you for the invitation to continue our Celtic series, Mike. These two have a love that time and shadows can never conceal.

This is a beauty! I'd venture to say it would make some of the greatest poets jealous!

Hi Lin, just here to give you my congratulations on our poem Of the Day. It was a pleasant surprise to see it there, especially from my page. I suppose, all that matters is we got there. It is always an honour and a pleasure to write with you. Have a wonderful day. Hugs....Mike. XX. I shouldn't have been horsing around when putting the slippers on. Lesson learned, i hope.

Wow! This is a very beautiful romantic write you two! I really really enjoyed reading this tremendous poem this morning, you have amazed me by your incredible skill with the Villanelle, a difficult form to master, but you did an excellent job at it! What beauty in your words I did see, took hold and relinquished me! Great Work!!

It's very nice, Frederic, when two poets write together and the end result is something that others conceive as poetry. Thank you for your usual thoughtful comments. ;-)
