A Love Poem

One afternoon 
when trees stood clear 
against the sky 
at dusk 
the light, a pale soft gray 
I sat down 
to write you everything 
I've wanted to say 
but now I have the chance 
I find my words of passion, love and romance 
lose all their heat 
when dressed in black and white 
and fall in silence 
on the printed page ...
I need the poets 
of another age 
to write their sonnets 
full of furbelow and fuss
I can only show 
you how I feel.

(Picture of us was taken on Mother's Day
my husband always takes me out to a lovely brunch)


  1. What a beautiful couple you are, Margie. And I see you caught the words perfectly. Isn't it hard to express our deepest emotions? Words just never seem to be enough...

  2. Oh, what lovely and loving words!
