Do You Remember
Do you remember that Valentine's Eve
Soft moonlight shining through silhouette trees
Silvery stars glistening just for us
Do you remember being so in love.
My interest and love of poetry began at school, when I was fourteen years of age. The class were given the project of writing an anthology of verse, using our own poetry and designing to cover for our book.
I really enjoyed the project and still have the book I made.
Poetry has remained a lifelong hobby, I enjoy reading and writing poems to this very day.
As poets we may not have a stake
in the Hall of Fame
Or not even Poet Laureate
put beside our name
But there's one thing tho' all poets know
that is for certain
Poetry's in the blood since life begun
till close of curtain.
From the day you were born I've watched you grow
Into the nicest person one could know.
Love changes everything, words oh so true.
My world changed the moment I first held you.
Love your poem, Sister Beryl. You're a superstar.
Analysis of Form and Technique
There was a shepherd who fell fast asleep
So there was no one to see to his sheep.
The sheep were delighted, freedom at last
Followed the leader and ran away fast.
I love this poem. I send blessings to you, Beryl. The words mean so much for me, because I know that we are the sheep and also the shepherd. We need but recall our Spiritual Father, "God,"...
That's so, so touching and beautiful.
I believe there's a Saint Valentine's Day in heaven and that flowers grow there.
Do not worry, do not despair for roses are abundant in paradise I swear.
God hears and answers all prayers and He'll present red roses to loved ones on this special day of the year, because He cares.
Thank you very much for the review, it's most appreciated. Sheep and shepherd...yes, I agree that's how we should strive to be. Everyone has a special gift God blesses us with, though the glory of every talent is His.
"Great is the art that comes flowing from the heart
You don't need expertise, the Lord sows the seeds."
Never having had a grandfather in my life (they both left the world too soon), this poem really touches my heart. Every word expresses the love between you and your Grampie. A wonderful tribute poem and that last line is awesome.
Beautiful belated birthday wishes!!! Who could fail to be delighted to receive a card with a lovely personalized poem like this inside?
There are times one comes across poetry that captivates the heart,
creeps inside never to depart...
An exquisite ace of diamonds classic
that only a magician could magic
'Tis hoped the recipient of this fine art
Felt the charm caressing her trembling heart.
Soft voiced emotive tender affection
expressed in most heartwarming perfection
Truly this has to be work of a Bard
A moving rendition to a love's heart.
