Sitting On the Ring Of Saturn


You frighten me,
scare me,
sitting on the
ring of Saturn.
But, the silver-light
the moon borrows
from the sun,
makes your face
bright and mild.
I sit on my knees
to grasp the beauty
of the blue
and the magic
light together.
True love
drenches my
spirit freely.

    this one looks like a part of the other poem YOU, as it has the same apostrophizing touch! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
