  • Lover's Lament

    when apple blossoms fill the bough
    then fall to ground as white as snow
    will you be home from yonder land
    to walk among them hand in hand

    the ache of heart which does abide
    when distance holds me from your side
    bears witness to the love most pure
    sustaining hope’s commitment sure

    dear lover, fly, with wings of haste
    beyond the vast and voided waste,
    returning here to breast aflame -
    then never leave my side again

      I'll wear that crown with humble thanks for your generous and encouraging comments. True glory belongs with the One who holds my heart, but I accept in His Name.

      Sorry, we have been crazy busy here. Hoping to post the next prompt tomorrow. We finally finished laying the wood floors in one room and now I have the wonderful task of bringing all the stuff that we have stashed away in the rest of the house back to its proper places in that room. Ugh - not looking forward to it RhymeLovingWriter

    Sounds like a lyric for a lutenist in an Elizabethan parlour.

      It does kind of have that vibe, I agree. Thank you for the read, like, and as always, taking time to comment!

    RLW, I think this Extraordinary Poem was written in the 19th Century, in Victorian England, by a Poetess of ravishing beauty and astonishing talent. The atmosphere you have captured is magical!

      High praise this, Tanner. I'm not quite that old yet - lol! I'm not sure what I've been reading but something has rubbed off!
