Treasure Once Found Within An Enchanted Forest Dream

Treasure Once Found Within An Enchanted Forest Dream

With cravings of Love's joyous shout

     as warmth of rose in full sunlight

         casting its dappled shades about

     hot flames, ardor's red-throes excite...
  and within soft glows, its amber shine

the fairy goddess became mine.

Romanticism, (What A Young Poet Once Dreamed To Find )

Note- After be chided for my not more often writing any softer, sweeter , romantic pieces, I took note and decided to sit a spell and let passion send its romantic fires to kindle flickering flames that once so burned my soul in my youth.
This short piece flowed forth and resisted my mighty tempting urges to lengthen it.
Actually, about forty years ago, I wrote about a hundred poems similar to this, in content ,in passionate embrace of the blasting fires that once stirred a young poet's seeking heart.

"Within soft glows, its amber shine the fairy goddess became mine". Yeah, that's what I call the true sweet nothings a poet should whisper in the ear of goddesses. I gonna try it tonight) P.S.: Panagiota, do you see? Robert guides me)

My response was " Chide Robert? " Come now, plenty of chilldish compositions here passing as Pioetry. Non- bright, nonsense totally. To be romantic, you are more than good at, Perhaps you should guide us and chide us. In true poetic verse? A fAVE Paagita I, will never forget being warned by one hot shot here.UGH, to change my writing style or else.
