There's pause in summer's rush this eve.

I find it peaceful, sweet.

A quiet hush surrounds my chair.

I'm calm from head to feet.

Day's work is done and I am too.

I hear my husband speak.

"Baby," he says with emotion,

(It makes my knees go weak.)

"Let's go out for a sunset drive,

Watch it set at the lake."

I look into his loving eyes.

Heat there my breath then takes.

"OK," I sigh. He takes my hand.

We exit side by side.

Jim whispers "Baby" and leads me

Off for a sunset ride.

Jess, this is one of the most romantic poems I've ever read. It reflects nothing but true love!

Thank you, Mrs. Martin!
You make one pause, /
and feel the comfort YOU find in the pause. /
You make one sense YOUR scents. /
You make one "hear" YOUR hush. /
You make one feel YOUR calm. /
You make one know YOUR words. /
.....the sweetness of "Baby".....
.....the depth of its emotion....
.....the warmth of sunset on skin....
.....the chill & thrill of togetherness....
.....the meaning of your "O.K." as a sigh.....

You DO know how to carry one away!!!!

MORE OF THESE "NEWLY-WED" pieces, please!!! Teddy R.

"Poe" I'm not, nor "Rich" am I,
but I'll be famous, b'ye and b'ye !
