Meeting at Midnight

Meeting at Midnight

A Poem by Suhd
"

Inspired from Robert Browning's Poem

"
The overwhelming dread seen and felt  
The same that Helen of Troy oft feared,
The distant gongs of midnight donged  
While waiting for the pointy prow.
With mischief in her bosom bored
she left and dropped the epistle behind

As her feet through the fields hurried
into an old fashioned farm and waited,
Before old age could dribble through her dreadlocks,
A faint knock at the pane and calling
of her name in a hushed voice, she lighted 
The candle and the two hearts lit with it.

Wonderful words- two hearts lit as one- the joining of two flames as one so special and sacred to all those that find it and can keep it- loved the words🌹

oooo, very powerful! Some wonderful alliteration, and assonance, and the imagery is very strong. Browning certainly inspired you to great heights. One little thing, should 'bosom bored', be 'bosom bore'?
I look forward to reading more of your poems.
