She Has Gone Now - Poem by Valerie Dohren

She has gone now, lost to dreaming
High above the vapoured clouds -
As a wispy phantom drifting;
Wrapped within enfolded shrouds

No more words to stir my being
Nor beguile my fretted mind -
Silent as the moon yet fading;
With my life no more to bind

She has gone now, I remaining
E'er to dwell in solitude -
So bereft of thoughts to ponder;
For my heart be now subdued

Shall I reach out, try to touch her
As she floats through ether's void -
Yet I fear I may not grasp her;
Thus my spirit be destroyed

She has gone now, I am pleading
Her return will ne'er be long -
She has gone now, I am waiting;
And in waiting, sing her song

    Every poet experiences this flight of Muse now and then! She is very much with you now, else you couldn't have written this grand poem! ! (Report) Reply

    Your muse is very flighty - perhaps you need one who is more grounded. Seriously though, a poem that glides as effortlessly as she does. (Report) Reply

    A very beautiful muse. It would sound really good
    With the piano.
