Monday Poetry Train


Again, an aside for me. I'm off to NY with Amanda Ramrod so I thought I'd post early in case I'm, ah, all tied up on Monday. Nothing new - reposts from the Party.

Happy Annie-Verse-Airy Rhian!

What Need

We tried to climb the mountain high
To touch the stars, the moon, the sky
A gentle touch, a muffled sigh
We tried to climb the mountain high

We tried to still celestial cries
To touch our souls with open eyes
A soft caress we did not try
… to still celestial cries.

What need to climb the mountain high
To touch the moon, the stars, the sky
What need to still celestial cries
To touch our souls with open eyes

What need a gentle lovers sigh
… when climbing mountains high



Will the Darkness Keep a Secret

Will the darkness keep a secret
If I hold you close and sigh
Lean in and whisper softly
Will the darkness turn away

Will the darkness keep a secret
If our eyes meet and we cry
If our hands touch oh so gently
Will the darkness turn away

Will the darkness keep a secret
If our lips touch and we fly
If our hearts sing in the twilight
Will the darkness turn away


Would Time Not Wait

Would time not wait
For lovers arms
To find the silence
Of the night

Would time not wait
For a gentle kiss
To heal the hurt
Of times apart

Would time not wait
For mornings’ dawn
To find our hearts
In quiet bliss

'What Need' is my favorite:
'We tried to still celestial cries
To touch our souls with open eyes
A soft caress we did not try
… to still celestial cries.'

And when I say it's my favorite, I mean I REALLY love it.

The darkness one is my favorite, since you can feel the sweetnees of the night!! The passion, and yet the tenderness or that couple!!

Ann said...

I like all three, can't decide which is my favorite.
