This is my attempt at Byron meets Poe... a little more Poe than Byron. Oh well.

It wasn’t Byron’s starry skies

or Edgar’s Annabel Lee,

but I read a poem ‘neath the midnight sun

that spoke of you and me.


It relished love, when love was young

and honored chivalry,

that poem I read ‘neath the midnight sun

that spoke of you and me.


But then alas, true winds blew strong

on life’s anthology,

and darkened clouds blocked the starry skies

that had honored you and me-

then Edgar fled and Byron died

and the starry skies became a lie

while the poem I read ‘neath the midnight sun

was replaced by reality-

that beautiful poem, ‘neath the midnight sun

was replaced with you and me.

This is really true Lori. But there is nothing wrong in dreaming. I could see the stars in your eyes as you reminisced, and then the disappoitment when the clouds covered the stars. A wonderful write and I could actually see what you wrote through the images you painted here. Thank you for sharing sis.

Also thank you for your comments on my new poem. And yes I was happy when I wrote it because I felt a great weight lifted off of me. Thank you.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie.

The transition from joyful imaginings into reality is a bristly one to say the least. You do an excellent job of instilling both spaces and feelings into the reader. Excellent poem, Lori.
