A Golden Day Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar

A Golden Day

Rating: 3.4

I Found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.

A golden bird was singing
Its melody divine,
I found you and I loved you,
And all the world was mine.

I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May.

A lovely, but sad poem of love found & then lost. It's sure one we can all relate to. It has a lovely, natural flow to it too. Thanks for sharing. Spiritsong
