Do Not Put Asunder - Poem by Suzette Richards

When we met briefly,
it was not you chiefly
that I was seeking.
I have dreamt of love
sent from above.
Our ages peaking.

As drops of rain
wash away pain,
you are the rainbow.
Each day we learn
that now is our turn.
In each other we grow.

Do not put asunder
that which lies under
the external veneer.
Joined by love
by the Grace from above.
To each very dear.

    Very beautifully described, I totally enjoyed reading it. I like as well the technical composition of the poem, it has a very natural flow. Keep up the good work and I kindly invite you to read my poem A Poet's Journey

    There is a different sort of cadence here that is defies description, I enjoyed it very much. (Report) Reply
