Out On A Ledge

Love, Romance

 

 

....

 

Out on a ledge amongst the darkness if it so be,

I shall stand on the smallest ridge

To catch a moonbeam from thine love!

I shall proclaim unto thine heart

Through thou most endearing love from above,

For thine wings have weathered such rains of rath,

Whilst flying high above each cloud!!

And though thy heart is weary,

Thou stands sheltered with love's shroud.

 

Mine, 'tis a pilfered heart aglow, whilst not beside thee!

Scourged by astral storms that cache thy eyes from mine!

Nay, my love! I shant fall trite or whimsy!

For thine love that drew us near,

N'er once became thus flimsy

Through all thine days and nights,

Of burning embers, stoked with gusts of rumbling winds!

On these thine mantels of thou heavens' fortress

'Tis thou place where all great love begins!

If you knew me, you would be

If you knew me, you would be removing that huge cumbersome foot from your mouth about now, catfish, as you write to a once neighbor in your murky slimeland who is now afloat upon lovely, glistening waters...and they call me "Lotus"... I love the sad faces on the catfish and those whiskers.... whatever they are. The Lotus loves them all! But when will catfish rise above the slimeland??? Perhaps they are best right where they are.... ♡♥♡

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Out on a Ledge:

Wonderful write and wonderful words of love and hope. Enjoyed your poem very much and displays such eager longing and enduring love sheltered from the celestial elements from which as you say all true love stems; brilliant.
