Nailah's Favorite Poem Friday.....


Yearning upon the faint rose-curves that flit
About her child-sweet mouth and innocent cheek,
And in her eyes watching with eyes all meek
The light and shadow of laughter, I would sit
Mute, knowing out two souls might never knit;
As if a pale proud lily-flower should seek
The love of some red rose, but could not speak
One word of her blithe tongue to tell of it.

For oh, my Love was sunny-lipped and stirred
With all swift light and sound and gloom not long
Retained; I, with dreams weighed, that ever heard
Sad burdens echoing through the loudest throng
She, the wild song of some May-merry bird;
I, but the listening maker of a song. 
By Archibald Lampman

Not too long ago, I posted a poem by Archibald Lampman. I said there were to many poems by him that I adored.  And, this is one of them. .. 

A beautiful talented should never be wasted. 
Amour Toujours
