# # Meet Me By The River (The Rendezvous)

Rating: 3.2

Meet me by the river tonight
Just you and me under the pale moonlight
I promise you I won’t be afraid
of the dark

Meet me by the river tonight
Just you and me, the moon and the stars
I promise I will give you my heart
There in the water

Meet me by the river tonight

An intensely lyrical poem that reads like a song. Your final stanza with its three lines and change of pace makes a fitting conclusion to the dreamy tone of the rest of the poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This has the beauty of simplicity and directness that is the hallmark of good song lyrics. It seems to cry to be sung, don't you think? Have you tried to put it to music? I am just sure this could make a hit in the hands of the right musician. Adding it to my favorites as well.

The first three stanzas are lovely romantic and mysterious too....but the last two lines left me stunned....the willingness to risk everything - just to be with someone you love....10

A fine projection of loving heart. The drowning of the lovers must have been in the ocean of ecstasy of union.

a simple honest beauty, its form is like that of a river. There is a gentle flow to the words and occasional eddy to add interest. The last line...aware of the dangers in love and life. I really enjoyed this poem. Reminds me of a mountain ballad.

Such a romantic poem right down to 'The Bard' style ending. Nice write I thought.
