(For Dónall) Meeting


Meeting, we touched
touching, clung to each other
never to let go.

A coup de foudre? Oh yes
on a cloudless summer day.

    The time frame is so wide - 'never' - meaning 'forever' here and the simple phrases like 'A coup de foudre? Oh yes
    on a cloudless summer day.' make the ethernity seem so full of life - i have always imagined it a bit boring ;) but here you make it seem lovely in some British manner - cup of tea or something and everything goes well. Sweet little piece. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
