I Remember You


I remember you
vague mellow memories
the faint whispers of my heart
and in the great glade of my mind
you shed your ribbons of dwindled time

I see you in the doorway of a dimly lit room
by the celestial dewy sickle of candle fume
resting at angle your shy eyes rise to fame
as your cheek bones fall into the wood frame

The gentle chimes of unearthly splendour
we wrapped ourselves in beauty so tender
the sky lay its lonesome sheet in surrender
and the angels fought each other to defend her

Rich images were painted with grace and glee
in the house where love was allowed to be free
from the opened jam jars that lured the bees
to the hazel and crimson leaves of autumn trees

but now I am tired and lost in wandering
the trodden lines in my face are well worn
in long sleepless hours I am left pondering
the love that blew away one sweeping morn

The clock turns its weary cogs
the muffled beat of its hands accrue
the furnace casts its final flame on the logs
and as the ghost of your velvet feet ring through
my breath aligns with the tranquil laps of the sea’s shoes
the regret that once flooded has now askew
and I am left with this image of you

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
