ONCE I ENVIED


Once I envied the fishes
Their crystal halls of sea
And the lark its flight
Up heaven's height
Where I could never be.

I envied the sky its sunsets
The grass its dew of dawn
And the bee his secret shining hours
Beside the rose in her honeyed bowers
With crimson petals drawn.

But you have brought me sea and sky
Heart of flowers and dew
Though now all choices were offered me
I would choose of all to be
Lying here with you!

  10. Love can do that for you, can't it?
    Being with someone you care so much for is a choice beyond all others.
    Your poem says it so lovingly.

  13. Beautiful poem, Margie :)

    I've been reading Gibran....and one of his quotes comes to my mind ' when your joy or sorrow becomes great, the world becomes small' :)
