Hold You In My Smile

Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.

    Young Poetess, this is indeed accomplished work, and i hope you do persue the publishing of a collection of your finest works, which will undoubtedly include all, but most especially this diamond verse that is currently the highest ranked Poem by a PH member on the TOP 500 POEMS LIST! I am also very honoured to be the one to cast your 100th vote...a (10) , but of course... Excellent Work, Ernestine.

    A+++++++++++++++++ This poem is as good as it gets. You have captured the reality of a Smile and the power it has over our hearts in a beyond remarkable way. I really love this, perhaps almost as much as ee.cummings 'i carry your heart.' It is fitting and just that you are here among the great masters of years long gone and that can't be said for many here...KUDOS TO YOU! ! ! ! ! marci.m. :) (Report) Reply

    Ernestine, the last line made me think how the contour of the mouth (as we smile) conforms particularly well to holding kisses and such. Beautiful poem!

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
