Your Words Stir Me Poem by Patti Masterman

Your Words Stir Me

Rating: 5.0

Your words stir me
Like no others;
A breath of springtime
At the door

After the dry hearth
Of winter
Has frozen all
My bloodless fires.

Your gentle words
So soft, so low
A single syllable
Thaws the lock

As potent as any
Seed ever born;
My gentle harbinger
Of desire.

I'd pursue you
Through deathless winters;
Give you this old heart
So withered and torn

My hope is tireless
With you before me:
Something beautiful's
Being born.

Something beautiful's always being born inside of me when I read your poems, Patti...

Patti - This is too beautiful for me to analyse in mere words - but - because YOUR WORDS STIR ME - I will try. I score it TEN for all the right reasons. Structure - six shimmering quatrains - rhyme (superfluous) - rhythm (bursting) - content (Plien de Coeur) .V 1 We can be stired by words Angel - but only when they come from the Heart. 'A breath of springtime'. V 2 A Winter of discontent perhaps? A Winter of frozen bloodless fire? V 3 Heart words are always gentle Patti 'Soft - low - lock thawing'. Gentle words can melt the heart and kick start the libido! ! . V 4 Heart words are always 'Harbingers of Desire' and when they fall on our lovelorn ear we should hark to the call and PURSUE (V 5) . And when you reach the voice always surrender your 'Old withered and torn heart' - AWESOME. V 6 This is the perfect poetic denoument 'My hope is tireless - with you before me - something beautiful - is being born' - YES YES YES. Never sucomb to Winter's blast Patti - there is always someone with just the word we need to thaw the lock and open the door of our heart. Thanks for sharing. Love you in Poetry - JOHN X
