Lost In Her Reverie

by RGstar

Lost in her Reverie

Her mind, like shifting clouds, drifting o'er swales
Below, the grassy knolls, deep verges and trails
She'll not crave the moon on gossamer wings
She asks only of love and gentle things

Lest be lost in her reverie

Of late--of commonplace; a love impaired
Smiles left idle by streams they once revered
Thorned once more, amidst the thicket of life
She craves--searching forth, if only to thrive

Lest be lost in her reverie


Scarlet the ink, where words and page collide
Yet, grey has no place where rainbows reside
 Love shall not delude, conclude or bemoan
For diaphanous is she, bright, as deeply sown

Lest be lost in her reverie

A fading rose, its poise shall ne'er forget
And she'll not think it folds without regret
Where dust and twilights settle and fill
A new love is bound, for she loves him still

Lest be lost in her reverie


And so of a bee, whose honey has dried
Let time not belie its passion and pride
Like a bubbling brook with warblers at play
A gentle touch will find that brand new day

...that brand new day
