This is a work in progress, I have never written in Iambic so please, suggestions welcomed.

Love to the Grave A stable boy had entered in her heart Concealed beneath the forage hay at night His troubling eyes that seemed so dim and dark Her hands tease through his hair so wavy rich But he’s a stable boy and can’t compete Though royal blood does course within her veins False statements will protect her noble name What scents of horses in the air suggest A secret meeting in the barn required The opposition banish him from her Affluent family removed love she found Now she’ll just marry the rich boy down town It’s a happy life silk dresses for her But his name and memories still remain Length of time has passed and her heart grows cold Crying out for him everyone’s aware Knowing he hears her utterance of cries Homecoming at her bedside love he brings Carries her as their souls unite once more Inescapable love was theirs always Lastly they breathe their last breaths together Entangled ghosts depart as they exhale Departing to the hills of misty skies Within safety and no separation To the barn where their first encounter met Margaret Franceschini August 9, 2014

Hi Margaret Please find below the idea: 1.oh the traveler of this world your ultimate destination is grave the journey you are making is for just few days 2.those having a sound sleep in soft silk bed ultimately lying in the mud... repeat 1 3.since the existence of the world, many a people came left the world with nothing in their hand lest you forget this reality every one has to taste this bitter reality repeat 1 4.you are eye witness of many funeral with your hands you buried many dead .

Now Margaret that is a lovely story and like Maurice I also comment you for using all these different styles, my husband Peter who is also on this site is in the process of learning all these different styles off another stylist site and doing very well I might add, it is a publishing company and he gets them published, too complicated for me. take care my friend..............Vera............

my favorite movie growing up was "Wuthering Heights" A nice memory for me as I remember watching it with my Mom, she loved romance. This poem was written with Heathcliff and Catherine and their deep soul love. Although I have altered the story to shorten it, the ending is true. enjoy!

love or money? a question that so often is asked, maybe it's really love or safety? So nice to read your verse this morning. Light & Love
