The Marvelous Young Man
  

The Marvelous Young Man

 

 

 

Strange fits of passion have I known

And I will dare to tell

But in my lover’s ear alone is

Where my secrets dwell

 

A young man, stout of heart, and strong of limb

A Strong hold on his affections

The pleasure which there is in life itself

Yet, uncertainty in all directions

 

Though older than himself was I indeed

Twas a full twenty and five years

Brought hope with me and forward thoughts

To explore new and exciting frontiers

 

When really I began my purpose

Was only to him to speak

Of remedies and of a cheerful hope

For truly as a companion I did not seek

 

But there we two were sitting in the shade

Fresh as green glistening at break of day

The birds were singing in the distant woods

While I, with him, had my way!

Love this write. You took me on a small journey and I love how you detailed the beginning and the final scene. Pure talent my friend!

This is delightful. I love that hint of joy and cheekiness you bring with you in some of your works. I see that you have great depths also...true poets always, I think, have such fulsome waves - so high and so low - they see the view from the cliffs as well as from the abyss. Thank you.
