The Respite

I have never known a love so strong That could enfeeble the might of my wall; Always too careful of unsullied happiness Fearing the wait upon Melancholy’s call.   Yet when the leaves shed cloaked by the mist, When the chill gently caresses my skin, My heart gets filled with cosmic warmth, Pleasure so stellar, it […]
