Where are you?


Just where, oh where has my true love gone
Will she come back singing a sweet song
Will we hug and dance in the forest deep
Or will she just curl up with me to sleep?

To wake and look at me with eyes of green
Telling me of the things she has seen
As she holds me close and breathes in my face
We kiss and rest in loves sweet embrace

But when I wake I am cold as stone
To find she has now left me all alone
But there is a note written in her hand
"My love, you'll find me in some other land"

Must I search for her taking Charon's boat?
As the wind whistles a mournful note
To find her in some Arcadian bliss
To greet me in sylvan glade with a kiss

  8. Oh! This is quite sad. I thought of Orpheus and Eurydice even before the reference to Charon.

  14. "My love, you'll find me in some other land." A comforting thought, though the interim can be lonely.

  15. Oh Robin, almost had tears flowing, as I read the end of this poem. Do hope, in your next incarnation, you'll find her, again, to continue your journey, once more.

  17. Enjoyed the way in which you tinted this piece with a classical aura, so befitting the classical theme of elusive love. Beautiful!

  18. This has a faery-like quality to it, as well as the yearning. Surely she visits in dreams? It's not the same, but....
