My Love Tonight

Blogs or Posts, D's Poetry


Ring the bell and tell of love
Above the sleeping hamlet,
As joy ascends unto the moon
And angels soon defend it.

But softly that no one may wake
And dreams be interrupted,
My love sleeps there
For her I care

And would not have her started,
Although I’ve lost my way
This night
And wandering imagine,
She has left the marriage bed
And found our moonlit garden.

Oh, damn the rickety device
That holds this bell on high,
And tells us all to silent pray
When we are so resigned.

Needlessly, we turn from grace
And soon we will be gone,
But I would toll my love tonight
And hold her to the dawn.
