Desolate LoveA Poem by leighgreen
Love - Inspired from the line ' We found love in a desolate place'
Through overgrown thicket
And glades of singing cricket
We found a place they don’t go to anymore
Under the lowly steeple
In a place once full of people
I made a fire of wood and twigs upon the floor
I’d taken you to the old chapel
On a horse of grey and dapple
And made you make a vow to me that night
Your body was all of a shiver
As the lines you did deliver
As you knelt at the alter of marble white
And in that broken church
You wore a crown of Silver Birch
And gave your love so sweetly unto me
In that desolate chamber
I always will remember
How our bodies writhed so alone and free
