Loves Hymnal

The past couple of days I struggled with putting todays poem together, in a way that I was happy with. It has taken a couple of formats and changes but in the end the result is what Is found below.

All that I can say about this poem is that it is and has been intended as a love poem. Taken from not one BUT two different couples. One that dies through betrayal and the other new found love takes flight on its journey and adventure as it were. There is little else that I can write to describe the poem, except for the format of the poem differes lsightly from others I have written.

We have 3 stanzas of 4 lines as usual with a fourth stanza having 6 lines. I wanted to test this format, when a poem at first did not fit with 2 lines at end of the poem, Thus I settled in this setup for this poem. I do like to experiment a little and this one is no different.

Having said all of this Please enjoy:

Loves Hymnal 

Silver and Gold can be sold one is told,
But behold a love ne’er cold breaks the mould.
Buying jewels of Gold, which compared thee,
On one knee he stops to plea with such glee.

Spurned he retreats through the streets regret meets,
Holding no receipts nor counting defeats.
Counting Chickens that ne’er hatched claim defeat,
Here no athlete can cross the street and cheat.

She takes a step and shakes heartbreak, her ache,
To make the call before the fall, her stake.
Another world see different eyes greet,
In disguise love takes flight yet so sweet.

Their eyes meet and flies skies of love the prize,
The night loneliness dies, hearts find new highs.
Beloved of hearts desires lighting fires,
In hearts forever combined, lovers choirs.
   Starlight shines for lovers eyes, where paths light,
In spite of the height love carries them bright.
