The First Time. - Poem by Fay Slimm

As the strip of fire edges its way
Over the backcloth of night's dark bay,
And makes horizon afterglowed
With sunset's bed of reds, echoed,

I think of the first time with you.

As the while collared waves, washed clean
And unrollling themselves, give meaning
To romantic scenes as this, gliding
Atop waiting sands, shyly uniting,

I think of the first time with you.

This rope of togetherness might
Well snap under stress of being too tight,
So must be loosened, yet until then,
As I feel the bond of need again,

I think of the first time with you.

    This is so graceful and loving, of trying to let go just a little to ease the pain, and yet it rises with the bond...10 (Report) Reply
