Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

By night I will be with the stars and the moon
I will shine a light on the darkness and brighten up the world
I will be like a shooting star soring in the sky and out of control
I will be the star man from Ziggy star dust and I will meet you all

In general I find that speech or words limit very much that what wants to be expressed, so I am not sure if I would like it if someone read a poem to me.

The only poem that I will never forget is from Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff. It is called Mondnacht. Many, many years ago my best friend died and it was read at his funeral. If I can say this about a poem, I would say, it is so dear and careful and beautiful. The soul flies down from heaven to the earth and back up into freedom.

In the internet was an English translation:

Moonlit night

It was as if the Sky
Had silently kissed the Earth,
So that she, in the glimmer of blossoms,
Now had to dream of him.

The breeze passed through the fields,
The ears of grain waved gently,
The forests rustled softly,
So starry-clear was the night.

And my sould spread
Its wings out wide,
And flew through the silent regions
As if it were flying home.

I have had a man write, and read, poetry to me

As it was his way of expressing what he could not otherwise express, it was beautiful

Maybe the words weren't for melting or soothing, but for self-expression

For All Time

Gently
Will I kiss your lips
And touch you
With my finger tips
Caressing
Each and every curve
In hope I’ll touch that
Special nerve
That stimulates your very core
So you’ll keep coming back
For more
Because
I don’t know what I’d do
If
In my life
There was no YOU
And so
My Love
If I should stare
Or gently stroke
Your hand
Your hair
It’s just to reassure my mind
And so
I beg you
Please be kind
And let me love you
One more time
And let me love you
For all time


I'm sorry it wasn't written for you, Molly, because (it seems) you can appreciate such little thoughtfulnesses. I ALWAYS try to put a little of myself, in my gifts. And a poem is a gift, if not to you, or to someone specifically, to the world.

And I give you this one, because you can "feel". Write me if you'd like to read others. J

Any lady thats stupid enough to fall for poetry, will also fall for the accoustic guitar routine, and probably sleeps with dirty long-haired hippies.

?????????????????????????????????????????????????

What can you do that's "BETTER", or more important, than sharing your thoughts, feelings, and time with another person? ESPECIALLY one that you like/love? I have a problem with your priorities, lady.

Whada YOU give them, Pat? A big dose of BS? I'd rather fall for somebody that was interested enough to share some of their time thinking about and doing for/with me, than some some smart a** that thought he was funny! And all hippies ARE NOT dirty, long hairs, or stupid enough to believe in stereotypes! You should take some time to THINK, before you run your mouth, Pat. Take the old saw about "Better to be thought stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!" to heart, man.

Who, or what is "nauseous" sweetheart? Your comment is a bit ambiguous.

I only have one question, tracker. Is THAT your idea of "witty", or UNwitty repartee?

Thanks for sharing that, Innocentia. I've never read that one before. And I DO like it! VERY nice! Thanks, again.
