Making Memories

~--~**~--~


With happy heart his old pen spiels its ink

in words that dance and sing upon the page.

Some say they’re the most beautiful, they think,

some even say they could become the rage.


With humble bow he knows that he’s been blessed;

what’s to be said but, “Thank you!” as he blushed.

He’s but a simple bard, he has confessed,

who knows, by wondrous fate he has been brushed.


Of all who come to read his poetry,

there is but one who sparks his heartbeats’ flame,

and so high on his list of probity

he has been heard to outwardly exclaim,


“Oh, please, Sweet One, come read my verse to thee ~

in every word’s a brand-new memory.”


~--~**~--~

flowery, but in a good way...expressive and startling in its imagery...
and i feel much this way...the poems just come...i feel lucky to be able to write at all...

not really responsible for what comes out....it just does.

but all we can say is "thank you"

nicely expressed...

"Making Memories"
Richard,
The honesty of no hiding and just being who and what we are is seen here:
"With happy heart, his old pen spiels it's ink." and
"With words that dance and sing upon the page."
Simplicity and humbleness are so lovely and refreshing to behold!
"with humble bow, he knows that he's been blessed." and "He's but a simple bard, he has confessed."
Then at the end of your poem the address to the subject of the poem, the loved one:
"In every word's a brand new memory."
No hiding no lies is the heritage of the closesness and familiarity of a relationship this honest. Beautiful portrayal!
Blessings,
Kathy

Another very well written Sonnet. Great rhymes and flow like always. I really like the 'power' of the written word that's expressed.

I never studied poetry writing, I just inherited the gift as my mother was a published writer and poet. I heard poems all of my mom's life, she would have loved this one. Especially the last line. Valentine

Who cannot appreciate the likings of Shakespeare in the morning?

"He’s but a simple bard, he has confessed,
who knows, by wondrous fate he has been brushed." ...I wholeheartedly agree!
