Best Poem of Julie Dant

I thought I heard you murmer
Among the moss draped oaks
Were you there?

Were you walking right beside me
Along that dusty moonlit road?

One more time with just your touch.

Of your fingers upon my lips.

Stands as brightly as in the day.

When midnight falls,

[Hata Bildir]
