Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Am I Dreaming?


Tell me again how the flame in your heart
Flares up when before me you kneel
To declare your love in this old-fashioned way,
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how you love me, my dear,
Make my heart and my senses reel!
And I, in my rapture, can only inquire:
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how the rose has no beauty
And its fragrance has no appeal
When compared to me - O, tell me again!
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how my eyes burn brighter
Than any light heaven could reveal;
While envious stars complain of their fate,
Am I dreaming, or is this real?

Tell me again how my love holds you captive -
A prisoner loving the ordeal!
And when you kiss me, it's then that I know
I'm not dreaming..... O, yes, this is real!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
