"And from her lips, as from a hyacinth full
Of honey-dew, a liquid murmur drops..."
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

Come with me tonight.
Leave your work behind,
just this once, and stand
with me under the full moon.

Tell me all your secrets
and I will tell you mine.
Let our spirits rise above us
and commune in mid air.

You have come to me
at times when I was not ready.
I was afraid to get too close,
lest I fall into your viridian pools,

so seductive and inviting,
and drown in your embrace.
Iím ready now, for a glimpse
into that crystalline mine

which holds treasures unknown,
so pure and wisely kept from view.
Iím aching to touch it now,
your perfect heart of hearts.

The beauty of the purity of your hearts, and the verse itself, leaves one breathless.

How lovely that you are drawn by one who is pure in heart and modest, too. This is such a romantic chapter of your attraction to her.

Wow! Wonderful poem Butch, I believe this is the best I've holly

Gorgeous, as romantic as red blush on Cupid's cheek and as sensual as that "honey-dew" & "liquid murmur" you quote above.

I agree with Taylor when she adds ,you may fall into the depths of those "aching" desires and "crystalline mines". I think you found part of that for a while. I've read more of your poems since then and you've matured with a passionate heart . Savannah people have a way when their hearts becomes part of their creative side. We all are gifted. I wonder if it's in the water?

Thank you for sharing this enthralling romantic gift, Butch. Love and peace,

Reviewed by Taylor Ryan 10/29/2006
The Shelly verse is such an elegant introduction to this highly romantic write, Butch, so magically ethereal in it's nature. It's as if you've found something so delicate and so special that you don't want to lose it, almost like a butterfly afraid to light on Shelly's hyacynth. You add the romance of the moon, and shared secrets, the lure yet with fear of scaring it's beauty away...the desire to know her secrets, while almost afraid once found, you may fall into the depths of those "aching" desires and "crystalline mine".

Perhaps I'm just a creature of romantic poetry! This is absorbingly gorgeous and cloud soft.
