    Love the flow of this,1/2nd,3/4th lines rhyme. Has a lovely old world feel. Tragic love...always poignant. The opening stanza is wonderful and draws the reader in to a promised story. My favorite passage is this...To me how swift these passing years
    Pursued we both, our own careers
    As rains and dusts, and all the storms
    My heart, till now, do not transform... (Report) Reply

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
