My True Love


My True Love
MY true love hath my heart, and I have his,
Fair moon, I climb your tide of Love.
In my memory of the first page of it.....
By just exchange one for another given:
Rough winds do shake my mind at times
but it is he my memorize memory cannot forget,
My true love hath my heart, and I have his
Passing strangers is what we was!
You must know how my heart longed for your soul
to be with mine,
How I longingly I look upon you,
His heart and my heart became one
that summer of June
He loves my heart, for once it was his own,
I cherish his because in me it bides:
We sit late. watching the darken slowly unfold,
In each others Love we hold.

    Three images stand out in this poem for me and together they create a persuasive picture of true love. The first one is celestial: FAIR MOON, I CLIMB YOUR TIDE OF LOVE. Most lovers are content when the moon shines over them as if it passively smiling down on them. But this speaker takes action: she climbs the moon as if to take possession of its tidal power. WOW! The second image is that special calendar of Heart-Events which bind two lovers into a very special, shared sense of time: HIS HEART AND MY HEART BECAME ONE / THAT SUMMER OF JUNE. Finally, the third image at the very end as they sit completely at peace and in wholeness in a growing darkness that threatens no danger but rather cloaks them in privacy. Such is True Love for true lovers (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
