My Helen

In a garden green we sat
My hand in yours
Yours held I
Roses around
Stars in the sky
Moon in full bloom
And the gentle breeze
Hither and thither
Move the blades of grass
The fire-flies flew
Around me and you
In restless heart of mine
The passion slowly grew
Closer I got
Pressed hand tight
No more in the world
Nor the nature's sight
The numberless glowworms
Around you revolved
In beauty and the charm
Resting on my arm
A newly wedded groom
Envious the moon
Jealousy in stars,
For resting on my arm
Was Helen of the Troy

    The irony is the powerful co existence of a poetic mind that is never devoid of elusive romantic flutters. The notes on the dark and shady spaces have finally been replaced by this brilliant write one on a breathing sign. (Report) Reply

    such love delivered with each line, I think my favorite would have to be, 'The numberless glowworms/ Around you revolved', such starry eyed charms, a gem to be shared with lovers everywhere. (Report) Reply
