Quatrain – Lovelorn

Love makes the world go round … here’s something lovey dovey. 

‘Neath the silence of midnight blue

We listen to the rustling trees

Whispering our rendezvous to

Toads, beetles and humming bees

Riding on the back of forever’s dream

Destiny swirls with eternal grace

In your eyes I watch hope gleam

Snuggling in your warm embrace

  1. I so enjoyed your palindrome yesterday, I couldn't prevent myself from visiting again today. Lovely poem. I didn't realize that I sometimes write in quatrains, but I left school many years ago. I'm learning so much.
    I'm off to visit Donna Smith now at http://mainelywrite.co.uk – she lives in Maine – hence 'mainely'. I'm going to mention you.
