Valentines Day-A Tide of Love In a Time of Thorns.


You came to me like a proposal of red petals
on a swelling tide of rose water.
You love me and I love you
no more time for rituals
for time is a fickle thing
and over your lovely shoulder
the tide of time is turning
bearing only the thorns
we did not see before

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
