A Little Ditty


O! love to me is but a season –
Seldom does it overstay,
And tho' I pain to seek a reason,
Like the dream, it fades away

To leave me once again in awe
Of how the heart can render raw
In loss of love; but then to soar

Atop anew! – and hail adieu!
To her who fled from chance I gave
To see us wed: Then on,
To court another fairer face –
And lose again in end of chase!

I curse the seasons evermore –
They tease me thro' their metaphor:
Starting fresh, their vigour young,
Yet oversoon, the ditty sung.

    Mark's Love Vs. Bri's Love

    Piled eighteen high and fourteen wide,
    Mark's R aining love, above, does betide.
    But methinks 'tis more like a tsunami wave,
    threatening both the weak........ AND the brave.

    How oft I've said I love you to numerous gals,
    and then had the wind abandon my love-sails.
    Adrift once more on the Sea.......of Loneliness,
    forced (for a while) to put up with only-me-ness.

    One difference 'seems' to separate his loves from mine;
    I've wed four times, while on Mark's hand no ring did shine.
    There HAVE been a few who escaped me before the ring;
    and yet some of THOSE [also] sampled my charming dingaling.

    Mark, you have inspired me! thanks for the poem, which i DID enjoy. :) bri

    i especially enjoyed these lines:

    Of how the heart can render raw
    In loss of love; but then to soar

    Atop anew! – and hail adieu!

    This is a fanastic poem which I loved. Hearts are so very often broken but can heal just as often. It is true that in our heartache we can sometimes let the simplest things upset us; such as the different seasons. (Report) Reply
