Again And Again, However We Know The Landscape Of Love

Rating: 3.1
Again and again, however we know the landscape of love
and the little churchyard there, with its sorrowing names,
and the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others
fall: again and again the two of us walk out together
under the ancient trees, lie down again and again
among the flowers, face to face with the sky.

I have always loved and admired his poetry. He is so exceedingly lyrical.

.......this is true love....being with the one you love the most....and just laying in a field of wildflowers... enjoying the view of the heavens...how much blissful could life be...
