A sad one…Love and loss…

 

And over the semblance of yolks my yearnings kept

Bindings of secrets when my ferried sighs drew near

I named thee Sweet Valentine in loquacious silence

And in the boundless deep I sang of yonder souvenir.

 

Fainteth not my soul! I must be weary and love-veiled

Thou art my fairy till time henceforth beguiles no more

And scenes laid where sleeping witnesses scorneth death

It shall be fitting in nature’s pride, twain destiny in store.

 

Exprest this sadness with liberty and nib of a poet’s pen

And eyes bedewed by tearful mourn and pinings repaid

Hail not death! Hail life;though all must justly obeyeth

Fondly I wail heavenward with phrensied woe dismayed.

" Parting is such sweet sorrow definition. A line from the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare; Juliet is saying good night to Romeo. Their sorrowful parting is also “sweet” because it makes them think about the next time they will see each other."

Yes indeed, the great man himself would pay homage to this poignant and pensively penned, poetic prose...Immense my good friend!!

Beautiful Victorian flavoring of your poem, feeling thoughts and tapestry of ministrations of your heart... Lovely.

I have come to realize that with love there is always loss. Someone eventually must leave whether it be through end of life or end of feelings. Yet most of us seek it and find it hard to live without. This poem is beautiful and written in Shakespearean style, so exquisite.

beautifully said my friend ..its the langauge of love that endures isn't it!? an oh my your poem resurects (my choice) those i loved from afar ..never giving up the dream lest i be forced into vulnerabilities men disdain ;) i love this poem .. to be read over again with care and attention ..and definitely Shakespearean .. especially have to smile at my youthful foolishness in your closing line .. great stuff says i Sami ..a pleasure to read
