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.

A little mischief in your poem, can you feel? ;)
Skip that! You bloomed something romantically amazing that proves you're well inspired...The line bout Troy gave it more imaginary visuals to understand the poem well...
However, this one's a great job done by you...Thanks for sharing Suhd :)

“A faint knock at the pane and calling

Thanks a lot!
Your title snared by attention. The romanticism inspired from Robert Browning's poem that you eluded to made for quite an intoxicating read. I felt the rush running through her veins. Captivating, in every sense of the word.

Thanks a lot for stopping by.
Such a romantic scene you have painted here. Loved the line, "Before old age could dribble through her dreadlocks". Lydi**

Thank you so much, Lydia.
There is something about your poetry Suhd that is reminiscent of the great eastern poets. The same old world charm, musing and a deep wisdom wrapped in them. Superb.

Then get spoiled. You deserve it :)
But keep writing like this!
You build up the anticipation of this meeting at midnight between two lovers. There is an excitement, knocking on the pane, calling her name and lit candles. Very nicely conveyed. Wonderful imagery.

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🌹
