Love's Gift

Love's Gift

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

Quatrain abcd bedf egfh

"
From Heaven's gate I swore to follow.
You lead the way and time did pass.
Your Earthly walk starts without me,
and from Heaven's portal a path is set.

You lead the way and time did pass.
Now, our search begins at last,
and from Heaven's portal a path is set.
As a promise made illuminates the path.

Now, our search begins at last.
Souls united is our plea.
As a promise made illuminates our task,
and joining hearts, claim love's gift.

A wonderful poem shared dear Cherrie. We hope we find our proper place one day. I liked the gentle flow of words leading to the strong ending. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Good evening from cold and snowy Michigan.
That's pretty cool. The poem and the form. No name for it? Just quatrains with advancing lines? Maybe it's a Palmerelle?

I didn't not see an additional name listed for this a Palmerella (sounds like a cigar).

Well since we got smoke grab the marshmallows and I'll get a stick.
Interesting use of repetition, somewhat like a villanelle but not. I like it.

Hi Cherrie,
Lovely rhyme which I loved as I do love structure in a poem.
Connecting in life is so important...
Your words show that so well...

Hi Cherrie,
You are most welcome!
Lisa, enjoying this area in Spain
Really nice, I didn’t check out the format , but rather just read it off the cuff but it worked so well, I believe your theme here of what seems like a quest helps, there is a journey happening within your lines.

All the best

I added a response last night 🌙 only to see cyber travel has been lost in space.

It would take me weeks to figure out how to do these. haha This makes sense and I see how the lines jump from one place to another. This has a nice sentiment too. Well done, Cherrie.
