A proposal by a man to his lady. Only she can excite love in him, and he thinks the basis of her acceptance of him must be the happiness he brings to her life.

We are all born angels but gradually grow into men; A few of us though do angels remain, And you, golden you, are the like of them: You whom Paradise led me to And who leads me each day to Paradise; Whom Fortune fished from my dreams to lay by my side... If you wish me love, wish me you, And if I should make you happy, make me hubby! Then for a day you’ll be my bride And forever my pride. And side by side with hearts, sweat, & tears entwined We’ll each day labour at the one wheel By whose fateful spins our home shall be steered Towards glowing destinies atop golden hills That Heaven wills as our dwelling place.

Hello SKAT! It's always a joy to meet with such warmth in a new place. I am glad to make contact with you, and I will soon take a tour of the show on your page. About me, I have only recently taken the turn to poetry, but I am looking to study the art and polish my skill over the next few years. I see many resources here that I can profit from along with tips from friends like you.

Poems set in Africa! I look forward to a surf through them. Its not a theme that has drawn much poetic attention, but that is an area in which I would like to see some growth in my own poetry. Many hugs!
