#252 I’d Forgotten About Romancing


I'd forgotten about romancing,
I'd forgotten how that goes;
The use of actions instead of words,
Like offering a fresh picked rose.

Like surprise visits to show I care
Or gently brushing My Dear Wife’s hair.

I’d forgotten it’s great pleasure,
It’s meaning, it’s intent;
To strengthen love and trust,
That sorrows we prevent.

Like swaying slowly in the moonlight
Or holding My Girl all through the night.

I’d forgotten about the little things
That prove to mean much more.
Like holding hands, holding hearts
And holding open every door.

Like a soft kiss to awaken from sleep
Or wiping tears when comes time to weep.

I’d forgotten the importance of courting,
Of dating and of wooing.
How could I forget to romance,
Not just in speaking but doing?

My Lord and My Love, forgive how I’ve been
And may I never forget romancing again.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
