“THIS IS MY BELOVED”

When a star falls, I shall wish for you.

When the moon is new, I shall wish for you.

When a bird looks into my window,

when a leaf falls before me,

when I find a fern in flower –

I shall wish for you.

 

And when autumn lays out her lavish colors …

her warm brown, ripe yellow,

her exciting red all over the hills and fields,

like a lovely woman undressing –

I shall look for you.

 

Extract taken from the above by WALTER BENTON

 

How superbly Walter Benton describes his love, how wonderful it would have been to have such a Romantic Poet in love with you.  Anna

  1. Drollery made me a card on the computer once. It said “Dream of Dancing — God knows your heart!” Does that count? o_O Honestly he doesn’t know what romantic is. He HATES eating by candle light because he “wants to see what he’s eating…” Sighs and rolls eyes…

    1. David was the same, blew the candle out – romantic, like hell he was. I think the above is just so sexual and romantic, could you imagine a man saying that to you Cheryl, wouldn’t you for sure make love to him. Just so romantic .
