Betrothed

Betrothed

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

An Ocean of dreams where hearts entwine...

"
My darling Melodrama... 

Your blue green eyes as sweet as 

Iris in Spring-time rhapsodies 

take my breath away in  fields 

of Heather where lovers lay... 

Come into the Chapel of my arms 

where prayers are whispered upon 

a cloud of secret promises... 

My heart is freely given.

Your poem reminds me of the "good ole days" when people often had outdoor ceremonies for all kinds of blissful or faithful reasons, with all of nature & imagination in attendance. "Whenever two or more of you are gathered in His name, there is LOVE" (The Wedding Song, which I sang a hundred times at such get-togethers, back then). I kinda miss having that wildly optimistic outlook, where everything warm & fuzzy was something to be honored & celebrated . . . nowadays, not so much enthusiasm with too many pockets of hopelessness. Your poem brings it all back like it once was, but some young whippersnapper chided me for looking back too often in my writing -- ha! ha! They're just jealous their youth won't be something as sacred to look back upon, I sadly surmise! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I don't know that I'm a fan of melodrama. The over-the-top sensationalism meant to excite often leads to a sarcastic eye-roll from me. But I am a fan of this poem. My favorites lines are, "Come into the Chapel of my arms where prayers are whispered upon a cloud of secret promises." That's pure poetry. I enjoyed this.

the Iris will bloom
soon come May
with a sweet bouquet
of springtime magic
romance is once again
in the air as fragrance of
Heather sway in the breeze
and perform the dance of love

as always ..lovely poem..

Dear Pat your lines are filled with the delights of spring time love. I am taking a hike down memory lane this morning to those open fields close to where I attended church. I am smiling and thankful for my time on this planet.
