Where Mind Soul And Pen, Often Dance And Play

Where Mind Soul And Pen, Often Dance And Play

In a sad blindness, one may yet find hope
Sweet romance is in truth a healing balm
What in Life, can we truly ever hold
True to Heart, an old poet's solemn vow?

Drowned in passionate depths of our deep love
Come to me Love, so that tender heart swells
O' broken heart, tis now thy time to mend
In thy love-realm I would gladly live and die!

Caressing Virgin soil, with soft caring hands
I beg to yet again kiss thy sweet precious lips
As cool winds grace soft emerging twilight
Where Nature's beauty and man's design meet.

There Winter's lonely fallows deeply dream
Where weeping willows in silent peace grow
Seeds sprouted from deep within mother Earth 
Fair maiden, forever this true love holds.
Wide eyes absorbing true magical scene 
Waterfalls in rainbows where we shall play 
I am laid bare, naked with nothing to hide 
Shall we believe in that promise forsworn?

Robert J. Lindley, 8-27-2019

Note: This poem was composed from titles of my own poems,  for the twenty title contest. Only after composing did I see that it was to be titles of other poet friends. Intended to rewrite but was very ill for several days, forgot and saw the contest closed before I could rewrite using my poet friends' poem titles. I wish I had read the contest instructions better, But still I decided to keep it as is and post it. My mistake but I had truly great fun going over hundreds of my poems to find these twenty titles.
