Tonight will be magnificent

Just you wait and see

Thank you for waiting for me baby

In a moment shared tho’

We shall both be overcome, so

Take a deep breath in and sigh out slow

A moment more and they were

Well and truly gone, yet the legend

Of their love affair goes on and on and on..



  • Doggerel Dave

    Ah - that's better! You've got a rich and cherished memory at last...........

    • Neville

      I have plenty of those DD thank you very much, but poetry, like life itself, in my opinion at least, is about much more than just the merely rich and the cherished .. Neville

        Tell me it's the owl and the pussycat.... such romance of legend has to be realised in a fairy tale.

                  how very clever dear Poet:
                  *within that 'tone' you've utilised in a seemingly unassuming first stanza - you've somehow encapsulated that 'youthful element of life' we all yearn to experience again...
                  *in that second stanza, versed utilising subtly archaic verbiage you've given us a taste of language's once great past - we literary lovers yearn to revisit...
                  *and in your final few lines you note their passing while reminding us: that they are never truly gone from our lives, for we need only reach back and reminisce - fondly, free of bitter regret, to insure 'their love affair' with us 'goes on and on and on'...
                  Brilliantly witty, another great showcasing of your seemingly depthless talents my friend

                  • Neville

                    ........ too kind sir ... but nevertheless uncannily accurate in respect of my literary intention ... sometimes .... okay, once in a while, they do seem to work .. but then, ya gotta have an eye for em ...
                    thanking you again.. because I can and I want to ...
