Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

It was the way you were (Terzanelle)


It was the way you were, Woman,
your beauty, your laughter, your smile
distinguished you from every other human

and only for a little while
your heart was mine,
your beauty, your laughter, your smile

filled my heart, my head, my soul like good wine
and I experienced perfect moments when
your heart was mine

and the whole world was beautiful then
with your eyes smouldering into my soul
and I experienced perfect moments when

you made me feel whole
and truly knew me inside out
with your eyes smouldering into my soul

and our feelings for each other were pure and devout.
It was the way you were, Woman,
and truly knew me inside out
that distinguished you from every other human.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
