Lettre d' Amour

Lettre d' Amour

A Poem by Susan 🌺
"

"EIGHTS 'N SIXES"

"

Soft gentle ways guiding my days,
with wonders ever told--
sweet lover's plea soon beckons me,
true treasures I behold.

For seldom seems, life mimics dreams,
or yearnings of our hearts.
Yet, karma weaves in tapestries...
'pon silken thread imparts.

Through gilded quill deep passions spill ...
enwrapt in sheer delight--
poetic kiss to reminisce,
desires 'neath candlelight.

Each tender word leaves senses stirred,
avowal testament:
held breathless -- awed ... 'tis solemn laud,
suave lover's pure intent.

By happenstance nor flit romance
should twin flames merge as one.
Eternal binds, ties hearts 'n minds,
a chapter's just begun.

Shall keenly wait, ne'er hesitate,
warm greetings, Dear Porteur.
So, kindly gift ... discreet 'n swift,
my Lettre d' Amour.

Altho you put a perfectionist level of care into crafting your words for a particular form, the thing I love is how your poem reads as if there were no form at all. No distractions, as it can sometimes be. Your verse flows with smooth sounding words clustered into groups (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A wonderful poem Susan and you are welcome.
Ah how you weave such romantic notions with your quill dear Susan. When he opens and reads your Lettre d' Amour he can hardly fail to be overcome with joy. Just as the reader of this piece must be. Lovely meter and wonderful flow with excellent rhyme and well chosen concepts.

you rhyme with such natural ease...and the wording takes me back to old time poetry i have read.

Romance and sensuality is a very popular theme. We all encounter it at some time. Most lack the eye to capture the essence of it. You have delivered this emotion so tenderly. Truly a beautiful poem .
