A Lover's Lament - Poem by mike ruthenbeck

Oh, Luna, in most splendid ardour keen
Aloft! Vieled behind such misty curtain
Basking the sea in milky ether sheen
While the breeze, sighing gently, most certain-
Ly renews romantic reminiscing.
Constellations in my heart are pineing
Nightwatch daydreams of your lips, and kissing
Each love letter I've sent you, and signing
Yours, Truly; despite such dismal distance.
Four years now since our correspondance last;
Four years only growing more resistance
To dwelling so oft upon our shared past.
Though I cannot help but feel, most surely,
When gazing from the sea up at the moon,
On my shoulder, your raven hair, curly
Our eyes not but an inch apart, a-swoon
With your dainty hands in mine a-twirling
Slow and tenderly, as I kiss your lips
You softly giggle, your sweet toes curling
you carress my bare back with finger tips.....


And then, just as quickly, you disapear
From such splendid moon, I avert my gaze
So upon the sea, one more salty tear
Departs from me, and with the ocean stays.
If ever a tear could be more at peace
Than among the infinite salty drops
Which all together give dear Luna fair lease
To scatter her beams from rolling wave tops.


For in holding beautiful things as best,
There is you, the moon, and then all the rest...
