Sweet Angeline In Heav`n Did Weep - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Sequestered deep in mystic realms
`Midst all the stars in full display
Encircled there by misty souls
I heard her sad soliloquy

Sweet Angeline in heav`n did weep
Her tears upon the world were spilled
Lamenting as one lost in dreams
Of dreams yet dreamed but unfulfilled

Those tears, they fell so like the rain,
As gentle snowflakes drifting by -
With broken heart, as shattered glass,
So like a nursling she did cry

She spoke of love she barely knew
That precious love, elysian kind,
That all her heart would so enchant
Yet all her life she sought to find

She looked in woodlands void of light
Beneath the darkened moonlit sky
In cloistered caves and valleys deep
In dusky glens she wandered by

With hope she searched in twilight`s gloom
In shaded arbours strung with vine
She cried as one in sorrow deep
(I heard her weep tnroughout all time)

Yet never once to glance above
Towards the sun, with brighter glow,
Nor seek to find her heart`s delight
In places high not set below

Sweet Angeline in heav`n did weep
In sadness ne`er to feel nor find
The love that she so yearned to know
In dusty hollows of her mind

    I would almost swear I commented on this before. I think it has that classical feel of perfection that makes
    you think you must have encountered it- somewhere, sometime before- or else, PH is hiding my comments from me again. Anyway, it's really something; majestic, poetic, timeless and exquisite.

    Yet another little gem from the mind of Valerie, haunting and dreamlike.

    Undiscovered love projected through romantics imaginings, maybe we are all guilty of such desires at some time as overly dramatic as they may later seem on reflection. A good poem to explore the concept. Lovely rhymes and lyrical tone. (Report) Reply
