    The world tries to squash us into its mould
    warping our character as we grow old.
    Nibbling away over the passing years
    trying to make us assertive and fierce.
    I’m so glad that you have worked it all through
    and decided to stay as the “Lovely You”

    Valerie I have written the above 6 liner in response to your poem and would like permission to give reference to your poem when I put the 6 liner which I have called The Lovely You in my list of poems. If you are not happy with this then I will NOT include the reference.

Best Poem of Valerie Dohren

Ode To A Lost Love

'Oh sweet breath of eternal life
Dance ever `pon her silent breast
Released from pain and worldly strife
The one I love is laid to rest'

Her flaxen hair, like golden corn,
Fell soft about her lifeless face
And round her shoulders to adorn
As limp she lay in death`s embrace

Still young, the bloom of youth today,
Her life had barely yet begun
But all too soon to fade away
No more to dance beneath the sun

No more to laugh in sweet delight
Nor skip through pastures wild and free
Nor hear the nightingales sing bright
In pure and perfect ...

Read the full of Ode To A Lost Love

The Rose

Calm the night and stilled the sea
Bathed in its tranquility
A fleeting glimpse of death`s repose
Gently stirred the sleeping rose

(But still too blind to understand
I let it wither in my hand)

The lifeless form fell to the earth
