I gave you violets;
you gave me your smile.

I gave you elderflower wine;
you gave me wild strawberries.

I gave you a small brown bird
that hid in the shadows;
you gave me the nightingale
singing to the summer midnight.

I gave you my need;
you gave me your warmth
and almost-tears
and rainbows.

I gave you poems;
you gave me inspiration.

This is such a unique and beautiful love poem that each tangible images gives greater weight to the claim of the final two lines. I love it! S :)

This fine poem is romantically and creatively crafted. I think the nightingale gives the poem a special touch and I felt the tender magic of the imagery. Karin Anderson
