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
