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

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:
