I'D Search For You - Poem by Beach Girl

If I could walk backwards into the night
Down dark and winding roads of pale moonlight
I’d search for you

If I could spin the earth back round the sun
To years before my heart was won
I’d wish for you

If I could fly beyond the earth's blue sky
From star to star I’d step, gazing from on high
For views of you

If like a drifting seashell I washed upon your isle
I’d hope to find you waiting there with your silly smile
I’m in love with you

    WOW! not only did i find one i hadn't commented on, but i found this FANTASTIC POEM. the only thing 'wrong' with it is that it's a 'love poem'. ugh! ! but such a wonderfully written one that it zooooomss to MyPoemList.

    I love the flow, the relatively short third lines AND that they each end in “you”. (of course you ARE referring to ME, but we needn’t tell everyone!)
    I do worry about a person walking BACKWARDS into the night; isn’t that just ASKING for a fall? ?

    the idea of turning back time by spinning “the earth back round the sun” is, to me, unique and fun. very clever. no typos, good rhyming; it has it all. too bad you had to mention “love”. ugh!

    and I think I’ll share it with at least one PH friend. and it would make a great addition to one of my PH showcases. think about it. bri :) (Report) Reply

    That we would endlessly circle back to the place of perfect love....Such a simplistic approach that spoke volumes....exquisitely written. Applause and PEACE... (Report) Reply

    The beach for me like the sea.
    Warm waves that clean your feet.
    Pulled back in, washed up again
    there along the shore...iip (Report) Reply

    Spin the earth back round the sun
    To score your love
    And wait for the wicket
    of ashes you won in life (Report) Reply
