A Lovers Stroll


Two lovers strolling on the beach walking hand in hand
Barefoot and scantily clad upon the bleached white sand
Their sweet words are many as the sand is on the shore
They held each other tightly as if to part no more

The love they shared is like honey flowing from a tree
True love that is experienced tis but a mystery
When you have finally found true love give it all you got
To have and to hold as the saying goes why not give it a shot

Just like the fish in the ocean love can seldom be caught
Like seeking a precious jewel it's always and ever been sought
No one wants to say farewell especially to love so soon
Whispering softly to each other they stayed and watched the moon

Alas! the true meaning of love who can know it all
No one can give the answer not even the crystal ball
Ah! my love the time has come for us to finally part
Love pierces the heart like an arrow and sears like a dart

The love they shared is as rich as a goldmines treasure
It's deeper than the ocean and is far beyond measure
They continued to stroll with a hint of gleam in their eyes
Saddened only by the fact they had to say their goodbyes

    Very true - noting can be more mysterious than love. The more you get, the more you'll demand. Lovers are in a stroll - they don't feel to stop... excellent detailing. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful, sweet and romantic poem with a sad ending. Everybody wanted them to be in love for ever, holding hand and strolling 'with a hint of gleam in their eyes'.
    I loved the rhyme, the imagery and of course the theme: Love is not permanent, one got to be prepared to say good bye to it in good grace.

    The best stanza I liked. (Report) Reply

    Let those lovers continue to stroll along the golden strands hand in hand until death do them part! But it is only a wish! They will soon be saddened by the fact that they have to say goodbye! A lovely, romantic poem! ! (Report) Reply

    I really was hoping they would never part. Well penned and delicately sweet, with some really great metaphoric lines (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
