Arousal

Arousal

As old as my years,
Embittered by memories,
I did not expect to be
Romanced by you.

Joie de vivre re-awakened,
We drink from loves chalice
With passions as florid
And as full-bodied as wine.

Heart full and heady,
I watch you lie sleeping,
My heart in safekeeping,
I know you are mine.

Anna :o]

Love is indeed not limited to the young Dear Jinksy and as all kind fellow Magpier's have commented - love is there for the finding!

I think we all need to be needed!

Thanks folks!

Warm n' fuzzy, without going overboard on the romanticism. Love this.

Manzanita said...

Your Magpie, although modern in words, promises an old fashioned love endurance. That alone is refreshing in todays disposable relationships. A comforting feeling.

That's a delightful poem. Glad I found it this evening, as I just finished my cheese and wine dinner. Lovely!

Hi Anna~ There IS something to be said for marriage through all the "embittered memories:" underlying security, the "re-awakenings," and the mutual commitment. I love how your poem builds. Good job!
