The poets' song

The silent dark encroaches
with another hollow night.
Old poets whisper sonnets
of love and sacrifice.

Her lips move to each arduous verse;
the emptiness advances.
Crescendos find their soaring crests.
A taunting shadow dances.

The moment lingers at a peak
then brings a slow descent.
And as the final stanza bows
her yearning heart relents.

Her memory finds his gentle face.
His voice resounds a vow.
And a quiet faith moves through her
expelling any doubt.

Soon her love will cross the sea;
his promises to keep.
Until that time, the poets sing
and soothe her soul to sleep.

Sadness and longing clothe in beauty, exquisite as a sunset about to die. Never more such a beautiful song of friendship and separation, never such a gentle kindle of tempestuous longing. Thanks for reading my poems and encouraging me ... invaluable is your inspiration, your friendship most dear. One love
