Extemporania

A Poem by Zoe Richardson
"

Happy Valentine's Day, y'all!

"

Dearest Heart you came to me

In softest light and starlit sea

With kindled fire your song I sing

And wake to find the breath of dreams

 

White of hair and locks of sand
In love, with great desire, I stand

I sing the moon and by my hand

I reach to you, my Promised Land

 

Tomorrow comes and ebbs the tide

And all the blessed hours ride

I send my love across divide

And wait for your return with pride

 

So it goes and ever on

Years will pass in silent song

We are just two in an endless sea

Lost in love’s possibility

Probably has nothing to do with what you were writing about but I felt this is what a love in the service might feel like. Proud to be alone. Nice rhythm and rhyme. Felt good to read it.

It was wonderful that you use the sea as an image. It holds in its deep the same image as the human psyche as Melville used it. A beautiful write.
