Solace of Love


What wind thy memory canst blow?
What rain thy name written canst wash?
Thy mark written all over
That the thought of thee in the wake of the morning,
Gladens my heart.

No other love greater than thee I see.
In the thought of the night you are my dream,
When I gambol on the hallmark of silence,
I feel thy great hold with
Whispers of love.

I long for thee so greatly I can't wait.
Come take me,
For all I live is thee
And to die, is thee
For my breathe with thee forever liveth.

My heart forever to thee belongs
Even in my insolence, is thy solace cast
Upon my troubled being
Sweeping the tears running down my cheeks with
Thy wind of adore,
The beauty of thy being.

As I am, thee I beg to take,
Hold me to thee close, never let loose; for
What be my world without thee,
What be my breathe without thy fan
Burn me with love and I shall blaze,
Roast me with kisses and I shall be renewed.

Cast your wings of love
To shield me from ugly claws,
Let thy shadow be my solace in lonely days,
In trials and hard times, let me hear your voice
And when the night falls on me,
Let your smile be my consolation to rest in thy bossom-
While I take my breathe of peace.

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
