Amber Skies.


Under humming amber skies
She warms me
With shivers of love.
and beauty in verse
Read from heaven's scroll,
As stars cry tears
Of the universe,
That glisten with sunlight
They had stole.

I want to wrap her
In blue moonbeams,
And bathe our hopes
In silver streams.
And as the sky
Holds aloft
Pastel colours,
Dreams painted soft
On canvas blue.
You kiss my heart with words
You do.

Such flowers bloom
To only excite
As meadows dress
In floral white.
And in such symphony
Of bliss,
Promises flicker
In candlelit kiss.
Left to burn
As hearts do yearn.
One rhyme that is ours
In violet blaze
Of love's sweet flowers.
Until we caress
In twilight haze.
Then you
Will wake my heart again.
When
That sting of goodbye
Flies,
And we will sing.
Under amber skies.
Under humming amber skies.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
