Nailah's Favorite Poem Friday


Loves Coming

She had looked for his coming as warriors come,
With the clash of arms and the bugle's call;
But he came instead with a stealthy tread,
Which she did not hear at all.

She had thought how his armor would blaze in the sun,
As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
In the sweet dim light of the falling night
She found him at her side.

She had dreamed how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
She found in his face the familiar grace
Of a friend she used to know.

She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm's strife:
He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
And a peace which crowned her life.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox


Last Friday I posted a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox. "Love's Coming" was also another poem of her's that I adored, and thought you all would enjoy also! 


Have a wonderful weekend!
Amour Toujours
