Matching Pair Dual Vilanelle - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Upon this man I’ve cast my spell.
He is forever bound to me
I know he loves me I can tell.

He knows he loves me, loves me well
he also knows that I am free.
Upon this man I’ve cast my spell.

I have a dream as all men do.
A dream which keeps despair at bay
I live in hopes it will come true.

My dream is old yet ever new
I can review it every day.
I have a dream as all men do

My heart beat rings out like a bell
which he must hear assuredly
I know he loves me I can tell.

Perhaps in time he will dispel
the fears which haunt him constantly.
Upon this man I’ve cast my spell.

I have but one dream I pursue
to while the lonely hours away
I have a dream as all men do

Then with three words my fears he’ll quell.
Then I will wed him willingly.
I know he loves me I can tell

Why is it that a maid can’t tell
the man she loves so openly
Upon this man I’ve cast my spell
I know he loves me I can tell.

A dream is better shared by two
but you don’t even look my way
I live in hope it will come true.

I know I am in love with you
and yet I am afraid to say.
I have a dream as all men do
I live in hope it will come true

    This poem has more meaning each time I read it. It would mean even more if I could hear two persons in unison. Robert Puisky said, 'Poetry is a vocal, which is to say a bodily act........In this sense, poetry is just as physical or bodily an act as dancing.' I think this fits your poem. (Report) Reply
