Moonlit Rays Bounce On Jasmine Scented Hair

Moonlit Rays Bounce On Jasmine Scented Hair She first came to me in the setting sun her long searching soul wondrously agape that June night dancing having youthful fun in her arms, I begged for no escape. Moonlit rays bounce on jasmine scented hair as earth, time itself stood silently still none matched or could her bluest eyes compare for beauty's truth and grace of that night's thrill. Days glory resplendent, hours were treasure morns set each soft and deep romantic kiss her heavenly touch was beyond measure we sought heart's every moment not to miss. She coming to me with the setting sun I would again race to in a mad run. Robert J. Lindley, Aug 3rd, 1979 edited and presented 6-27-2020 Sonnet, ( Romantic fervor and sensual delights ) ( Where In Youth A Great Treasure Was Once Found ) Note: From a memory thus was born feast of love and youthful kissing she from my arms fatefully torn heart shall forever be missing....

Thank you my friend. My favorite poet Byron would agree. Romance is to poetry, as red is to rose. Bread is to precious life as words are to prose. No faithful poet will this wisdom ever deny. Romance is to love, as blue is to shining sky.. God bless...

Thank you my friend. Wonderful romantic verses my friend you have given in reply. You perhaps should continue that as a romantic poem. I think it would be truly fantastic. God bless..

Oh, how tenderly romantic and such poetic beauty to cause this older poetess to weep. Robert, you are a treasure and a master poet. God has blessed you in both goodness and writing talent. :-)

Thank you my friend. One must truthfully relay what the poetic heart dares to speak. especially so if one has once lived the experience.... God bless....
