Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


Changes


I swam within the depths of you,
The waters warm and calm.
The currents soft, a gentle flow,
protected from all harm.

You smiled at me, a gentle breeze,
Caressed my troubled soul.
One gaze from your, soft, caring eyes,
Made what was broken, whole.

A touch from slender fingers,
Would set my heart afire.
A kiss from tender perfumed lips,
Would stimulate desire.

Winter held no power,
To chill the love that burned.
Your voice, a message on the wind,
Would tell of spring, returned.

I thought a love, that burned so bright,
could never pass away.
Yet here I sit, in sadness, cloaked,
Alone, bereft, today.

    Changes fast too doesn't it? Beautiful words strung together to describe a horrible feeling at the end. I particularly enjoyed this verse:

    Winter held no power,
    To chill the love that burned.
    Your voice, a message on the wind,
    Would tell of spring, returned. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful love story. Delicate and gentle words flower this poem with loves sweet hope... and a tearful ending as well. Your capacity to express the full spectrum of human emotion, love, sadness, joy, whimsy and so on in all your poetry is truly a special gift. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
