Love - Poem by Sean Joyce

I so, oh so, softly loved her
we so, oh so harmonized
in the hollow of the morning
we in concert all combined

I so, oh so slowly loved her
she so, oh so slowly that
night and day again had faded
still together intertwined

when the time to go was on us
love is life yet time alarms
knowing I could not allow it
kissed her back into my arms

when they found us in the winter
we were there and we were not
'passed the time they said in
loving, and in love all life forgot

    I like this very much Sean, but I have to say that it reminds of your namesake, James. I'm not suggetsing a particular work, I am just saying that it is the wording. This has such an Irish feel to it (the Modernist Irish) , in one sense you could view it as dated, but there is such a freshness toit that it would be hard to hold that view for too long.
