What Say You My Heart So Tender Poem by Valerie Dohren

What Say You My Heart So Tender

Rating: 5.0

What say you my heart so tender
In the glow of eventide
When the world is calm and silent
And all tears fore'er subside

Shall you greet the coming dawning
Peacefully in sweet repose
Or shall you renounce in fury
All you cherish, at the close

As the clouds caress your slumber
And all dreams then fade from sight
Will you cease your ardent pounding
At the coming of the night

Or shall you throb ever stronger
Sore afraid to free the bind
Grasping tightly at the passing
There within your troubled mind

See, O see the darkling moonlight
Watch the shining rising sun
Slip into eternal rapture
When the day is ever done

Sleep as like a babe so tranquil
In the arms of loving care
Give yourself to stillness ‘biding
Rest forever, peaceful there

What say you my heart so tender
As you take your last encore
Shall you whimper as a childling -
Or be still and beat no more
