Fay Slimm.

If.

 

 

If.


If you visit me when the sea, flat as glass lies quietly

basking in hot summer sunlight

I'll come to you when the grass, flaked with autumn

moon-lace waits some alluring night.

 

If you call at my door when the moor, cold and raw

molds winter to passion's wild scene

I'll come to you when the woods, belled in blue smell

of spring's heady lust dressed in green.

 

If you fill my heart yearly through seasonal changes

and share ardent feelings together

I'll come to you when fades young amour to infuse

weathered fore-play with forever

          If, Rudyard Kipling wrote with the empathetic grace of a liberated lioness's genius: of female intuitiveness - it would sound a lot like this...
          a read: riding upon the gentle river of beautiful imagery your words weave, from first - to that last stanza's tug of universal yearning,
          of a love outlasting youth's fervent desires, to graduate into those lasting fields of majestic grey devotion,
          breath-taking: in its deceptive simplicity

          • Fay Slimm.

            To be mentioned with such a poetic celebrity does me such honour L.B. - - so pleased you enjoyed the imagery in my take on IF....... and indeed I thank you sincerely for the visit and read.

              Well, I simply love this one, not just the emotions it conveys, but the descriptions of the seasons. Those emotions sustained through eternal seasons, bring uplifting hope for everlasting love. Just terrific. High Praise - Phil A.
