The Fall

The Fall

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

a love poem

"

Be careful dear and watch your feet least you fall the path is steep.


One foot sat and then the other,

will keep you safe from one another.


But through the years and all these words


did not prepare me

where love is concerned.


Falling fast, yes dive right in,

tumbling down toward the win.


Swirling thoughts,dreamy start


 and a racing pulse warms the heart.


With one glance

I fell so fast

and decades later


 I find

this fall to be steadfast.

I enjoy a good love poem and this certainly that. The first two lines, being the longest, set the pace for what I see visually and emotionally a sweet downward ride to a appropriate conclusion. Great use of language. It was romantic without being annoyingly cute. I think it's a great poem, but the only thing I would possibly change is the last word in line 5, "win". I don't know why it doesn't sit when I read it aloud. Anyway, it might be how I'm saying it. Cheers. CD

Playful, the way the lines rhyme. It reminded me of some of my own work. Well done.
