Rookie - 12 Points (Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Quenched Thirst.

Brimming with care, prepared is our love-cup.

Thirst quenches deeper now nectar runs clear.
Not wanting to waste in sips, I drink up.
Swallow to glassy dregs, and unfearful
That love will taste bitter after such draught,
I settle it deep, and heart feels emboldened.

Now sweetened, ready for honeyed laughter
I escape the dreary norm, take firm hold
Of fate's hand and head for life love will control.

    your thirst has been quenched, but your heart is afire
    your dressed for the night, but not to retire!
    your heart I feel beating and breathing is deep
    your ready for bed, but not to sleep (Report) Reply

    Fay, It is written with all sweetness.
    Call it luck or God's grace! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    Of fear and fright there is no trace
    Heavenly bliss brightens the face
    Successes in all spheres embrace
    Love comes to life in flowery vase
