A Broken Promise - Poem by Barry Middleton

if love is a promise in spring
so love may as surely take wing
for springtime must end
though lovers pretend
what love's frail illusion can bring
no love is a union of souls
to hold us until we grow old
for love seems to fade
like spring's masquerade
when seasons return to the cold
so love will await the refrain
the seasons are ever to blame
for love will know fall
and winter's dark pall
until only memories remain

Topic(s) of this poem: illusion, love
