Only Words Can Say


saw you from across the way
and only words can say,
than stare
at you so near,
your eyes, crystal clear
in yours, i ought to stay.

would you stay?
can you really do?
would you marry me?
would you carry me?
questions within me
all gone unknown to be.

i pause
to scout
for a spouse
not in doubt
to the falls
all gone without.

forgive me for looking
at your beauty,
your talk is soothing
like the morning,
i run smoothly
to the calling.

let me say these few lines
to take you many miles,
where only words can stay
when only words can say,
i pause to reckon with the silence,
you walked across my silence.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
