Freshman - 1,440 Points (26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Love Is Dying


It's over, our love is dying,
It won't make it through the night;
The willows are weeping in anguish,
While the stars cry their tears of light

A rose bows its head in sorrow,
Exhaling its last perfumed breath;
A love that once burned so brightly -
Suffering this untimely death!

Tonight all the doves are mourning
And asking 'How can this be? '
Waves patiently wait at the shoreline
To carry the remains out to sea

Dismal is the mood in heaven,
We've made the angels cry;
May God in his mercy intervene
And not let this precious love die!

    When love dies all hope is gone. Can only be
    resurrected when new love starts to bloom.
    Never give up on love. A good write. (Report) Reply

    Lovely to see that rhyme and metre still abound here. A well written poem on an overworked theme. David (Report) Reply

    Indeed this is a lovely constructed poem with such a romantic flow. May I suggest, to keep the meter going, in the third stanza “Waves patiently wait at the shoreline”? and in the fourth stanza third line, to shorten the line by one syllable, perhaps use “intrude” for “intervene”. Please read mine – Love’s Diamond –

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
