Young Lovers

Two lovers came upon a woody brake
And entered there within - their leave to take
Across their heads a bow of leafy briar
Which interlaced below a bright blue sky.

Nature had there formed a perfect cradle -
Cover to young love was thus enable'd
Bees were buzzing 'midst the loaded flowers
Where these lovers spent long drowsy hours.

For spring had burst through shoots and within leaves
With gentle mockery season deceives
And playing now with fancy on a breeze
They kissed and felt delight in trem'bling knees.

Where coarse emotions were - some even base
Now love and winged poesy took its place
The verse of these two hearts - was subtle - calm
And their spirits - were - each others balm.

So if you ever see young lovers - going
Into the forest - or some shady dell
Bless them in your heart - and just remember
That we were once young lovers there as well.

How beautiful and moving this writing is.

It is amazing to recall those feelings many of us had when we were young and innocent.

But better and more wonderful yet ~ is to be well into the twilight years, and be lucky enough to meet someone ~ and to be able to feel those feelings once again....even stronger tis time.

Thank you for sharing.

Mady happy place

Yes this is true; although this is an "idealized" version of love, partially for the sake of poetry (I owe a bit to Keats here - although the composition is wholly original). I can see what you mean though. Take care - and thanks for your comment - lcbr.
