Boulevard 42 On Valentine's Day - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Along this boulevard we stroll and cycle
We pledge our vows of our love eternal
You look at me and shyly I look at you
We laugh and giggle at the magic of life.

Along this boulevard we summon the doves
and pigeons to surround us as we feed them
by crumbs of bread from our lunch boxes.
Here they dance, open to our magic touches.

Along this boulevard we carve our names
for the future, a lovely pair to march
in the church aisle, a married couple
to declare before our guests and families.

Boulevard 42 is part of our common nest
where we lay down our eggs of hope and courage.
It is the boulevard of dreams, a boulevard
of our love that gives birth to our child.

    Your poetry touches me Elizabeth. Pity that PoemHunter advertises war games above them - but perhaps you cannot see that. (Report) Reply
