Romance by moonlight. May you and your beautiful girl continue to make poetry together time out of mind. Your song has no end. Always your friend at poemhunter, Sandra

Uriah, this is romantic poetry at its best. I love the contrast between the first stanza and the rest of the piece. The life on the street vs the life in your moonlit room. Again your title is superb. You are a fine poet with a warm heart. love, Allie xxxx
