He was debonair, full of flare charm exuded here and there but she was so unaware and she let her heart to dare poured out love and all her care But he another love did share There he stood, there he bled he knew that she longed to wed all this filled his heart with dread for she loved the youth instead This young rival he must shred Take her to his heart and bed Walked in rain then took a spill Jilted, wilted soon fell ill to live life she lost the will Passion gone, there was no thrill but her heart he longed to fill His love was the magic pill The she knew love has no age his hand turned a brand new page Now that in love she was sage Rescued from falsehood's cage Passion danced upon their stage No one could their joy to gauge Jade Celeste This is the story of Marianne and Colonel Brandon from Sense and Sensibility. You should watch the version that has Kate Winslet play the part of Marianne. Emma Thompson is her sister. Marianne is in love with the young John Willoughbye, who is dashing and charming. She is passionately in love with him, but her heart is broken when he gets engaged to someone else. Colonel Brandon, played by Alan Rickman, is an older man who is passionately in love with her but doesn't express it to her in ways she expects. However, when she falls ill, he is the one by her side. He nurses her slowly back to health and wins her love. :) This story is written by Jane Austen. Oh how I love the classics. Sometimes it is the steady, deep, unassuming love that is truly lasting. I've written a poem on this theme with a different twist: Scent and Sensuality. ;) I

Very clever title Eileen. This has the makings of a great soap opera. You my dear are a "hopless romantic" thankfully we are the benefactors of that passion. 7 all the way!

Jane Austen has to be amongst my favourite writers, Pride and prejudice is timeless, always something new to find in it everytime you read. And you have managed to put sense and sensibility into monorhyme and tell the story so beautifully. You constantly amaze me my enchantress, you shine! love Shane xxx

OH!!! What a lovely experience. Yes....I've seen Pride and Prejudice SO many times. I like it more than Sense and Sensibility. You are a wonderful dad, David. :) Thanks for your visit. This poem isn't that great, just came to me. Hugs from LO.
