#MM Saturday Mix — Your love’s return


when quivered lines sigh stable
when gentle breeze bare stirs
when heart affirms its able
when I rest among the ferns

I’ll sing, recall your fable
as hawks fly o’er the trees
I’m bound to you, a cable
like blooms are bound to bees

forgot is “wrong,” the label
instead is love renewed
return to share our table
two old but altered views


The poem is in quatrain form.
Title the the name of a favorite song by Gordon Lightfoot.

      That song can be taken in several ways. The way used here in the poem is a different way than I used it before. Thank you for the nice comment.

        English is nicely ambiguous. I like that aspect of it.

      I like to hope so, should the occasion arise. At this point it is just an idea. Thanks for reading and your comment, Larry.
