Echo

Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.

O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter sweet,
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brimfull of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
My very life again though cold in death:
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low
As long ago, my love, how long ago.

    So explosively Romantic and sad and somber at the same time.

  • Patricia Northall (3/22/2014 1:21:00 PM)

    A beautiful, yearning for love that has passed. I felt the emotion so deeply.Echo is an excellent title. The last verse is brilliant poetry.
    come back to me..... and the conclusion of breath to breath, pulse to pulse....
    A Lover's lost love of longing, even pleading, for the echo of their love shared so
    deeply.
    The best Love Poem I have read.

    I related to this beautiful work of ART..

  • Carlos Echeverria (3/22/2012 1:06:00 PM)

    I've always found a woman's love poem more powerful and poignant than that of a man; there's an honesty perhaps less restricted my the ego.

  • Aleksandra Szymanska (3/22/2012 1:05:00 PM)

    One of the most beautiful love poems I've ever read...

    softly delivers the content pleasure of waiting for and having dreams.
