Do you know that when the sun
slants a listless gold
on hearts like mine - Because of you-
my heart is never cold?

Because I know you have walked
through many a midnight glade
with dauntless steps, my pathway lies
controlled and unafraid!

Because of you, when twilight wraps
her brooding arms in grey-
my heart grows light as little birds
tucked-under-wing away.

Life's trials and goading tasks
seem not so hard to bear
when I recall in nighttime peace
YOU know- YOU know and care!

  6. Beautiful and gentle poem as you are.

    The snow is silent, but the wind howls like a banshee
    Cold blizzards that cut and slice the lace of falling snow
    The two spirits fight in the air.
    Gosh! Margie. You must be getting some great inspirations from it.
    Keep Well!

    "Because I know you have walked

  23. Dearest Margie – revised comment

    (I lost original with blogger “situation”.
    I am sorry, my perfectionistic ways got the better of me!
    Was too rushed to spell check last night (dyslexic and English-as-a-fifth-language don't help either, ouch!)

    I became all teared-up again as I re-read it.
    “Do you know that when the sun
    slants a listless gold
    on hearts like mine - Because of you - my heart is never cold?”
    With yopur permission I like to borrow the first verse.

    I also wanted to comment on the faul language used by some “otherwise nice” people …
    I think that cussing should be left – if needed - for use or, abuse at our own individual blogs, instead of being carelessly tossed in the most inappropriate places – such as your gentle and kind one …
    (Please forgive my presumption in addessing this matter… it does take me aback!)

  36. Hello dear Margie

    I am pleased to read that you have found a way to preserve the integrity of your blog.

    I feel quiet strongly about how visitors behave in mine, while all opinions are welcome, it is not a "free for all" ...
    How can it be?
    This is like our home (however public) where the doors are open to one and all.
    Why then should anyone welcome feel free to soil it , while at the same time smilling at us?

    Thank you for your generosity of spirit.

    Got to run...
    Be back in one or two days!

    Lovely poem you posted tonite
    Big hug

    Thank you and Jeff for last night's "company"!

  37. Angel, my friend, thank you!
    I do appreciate your kindness towards me!
    Big Hug!

  39. ok so its been 6 months since i read this last but i randomly picked a december one to made me smile again...have a lovely evening yourself...


Each day comes
bearing its own gifts ...
Untie the ribbons.
