Waiting For You

The daylight is dying Twilight comes flying Purple and crimson blaze in the sky; The sun's in a rush To part with a flush And kiss the meadow good bye. An hour for trysting When you come unresisting Precious and eager on hesitant feet; Shadows disguise us Rose scent to baptize us Scenting our bed with odours so sweet. We can't know the reason Or the span of a season But eternal the stars shine up above; We never had sought it We never had thought it Were it not jeweled with the beauty of love. But all is forgiven By chance that has given An hour for the transition of youth; We never will know it But our dream will now show it Changing it all to astonishing truth. The fireflies ignite you My breath will delight you Nothing will vex the passing of hours; Come, I await you Night is too late for you Come while the dewdrops are kissing the flowers. The wind of the night is Fragrant with lilies Touched by a moonbeam, kissed by the dew; The garden lies breathless Where love awaits deathless Under the starlight, I'm waiting for you.

I think it's all already been said... but, here goes. Scintillating! The cadence is designed to lull one to sleep, and your rhyming is absolute perfection! I am in awe... :))

somehow you have incorporated matter of factness with expectancy and excitement at the prospect in the midst of nature's imagery. Very very interesting and unique Elizabeth !

Hello my dear friend, this is the perfect poem for me to say thank you for keeping in touch while I've been doing battle with "the dark side." Return home was delayed and I've been focusing on music lately but so glad to hear from you and read this AMAZING piece of pure beauty coming from a true-blue poetry queen. Thanks for everything.

Precious and eager on hesitant feet. May we all find a way to find love someday. Where we'll jump in with both of our feet. And know that it's love that came from above. When eachother, we finally meet.

Another perfect expression, Liz. This piece would be wonderful set to music, but the music would have to be equal to the piece, and that would be so difficult. Love, daver

Oh my! This is fabulous, Elizabeth. So romantic and worded with creative imagery. You should enter it in the "erotic" contest. This is as much as I want to hear about a love relationship. Very tasteful and dreamy. Love, Carolyn

* “I Viewed This Your Beauties Wonderful Last Eve When I Was A Bit Fatigued * My Dear Sweet Beautiful Elizabeth * As While Reading Its Pleasantry A Second Time * I Was Left With of Edgar A. Poe * This Most Probably Because of The Beatful Notes I Found Amid A Sweetened Rhyme * It Also Held Vines Which Reached Deeper Inside * Very Beautiful, Sweet Elizabeth * Let Us Find But A Golden Frame * Placed Amid the Wall In Faves * My Luv, Always * Sarah.” *
