    Dawn on the Moors

    'Tis dawn on the Moors
    and I miss my dear Rose
    as she wakens in Devon
    midst a murder of crows
    her blue eyes aflutter
    and her gold hair askew
    on a pillow of lace
    that fair matches the hue
    of her cheeks and her lips
    now so far from my own
    and I wonder in silence
    if she feels this alone
    i came here a boy
    seeking just enough gain
    to allow me to leave here
    and to go back again
    to the county and town
    that my heart never left
    and my only true love
    that without ... i'm bereft
    but only time tells
    what our futures will bring
    and only time knows
    if we cry or we sing
    please be kind to yourself
    my dear Rose blonde and blue
    and never mistrust
    that i loved only you

    Gosh that's powerful. Makes my neck fur stand on end and brings a tear to my eye.

    Lee, thank you. The image of her waiting with rose in hand will go into my Gifts folder. I have no answer as to where my mind has been going lately ... I think it's a matter of accepting where the Muse takes me.

    Robert you have lifted this forum even higher still. Art and poetry are such close siblings, and you seem to know them both rather well.
    Be well,

    Thank you David. I have no delusions that my poetry is anywhere near professional quality. I did send copies of this one and "Sextant" to a friend of mine who is working on a doctorate in Rhetoric and Composition and overall was pleased with her reaction and comments.
