A song clip


you're the refrain
my heart pings to
on a slow dance

the steady string 
at my kite's end 
bidding me - fly!

the woody arms 
when eaves are howl-
ing violins-

you're the steady tap- 
words beneath words-
pull of spring wind
beneath my steps-



Posted for D'verse Poets Pub - Quadrille - 44 word post with the word SPRING.
Thoughts while watching a lovely couple, our close friends, renew their wedding vows last Saturday (25th anniversary)~  Thanks for the visit ~

  1. Spring's a good time for renewing wedding vows. I liked the idea of being someone's "words beneath words".

  2. Very romantic--one of the poetic portals of your nature--not that you cannot summon the vitriol when necessary, or exorcise anger/anguish--but with Spring as Muse, our curmudgeon tendencies ebb.

  17. What a wonderful poem, Grace, and tribute to enduring love.If I had to pick a favorite, I suppose it would be that last stanza, the grand finale. But I can't pick just one.
