Love's Fortune

I was merry not, in two was I,
And round the clock I wondered why.
So free I did what man should do,
Forget the bitch and start anew.

You know of this how boughs can break
How rivers run, how worlds can shake.
And as you told me to before,
'Goodbye, ' I said, to love once more.

Now free, I thought what life should be,
When came your love to rescue me.
Though lost in love as I was then,
Loves once fulfilled don't yearn again.

With you I make my time and seed,
Fortold by you the love I need.
And that I know, for I can say,
I'm fortune blessed you came my way.

With you I make my time and seed, Fortold by you the love I need. Rachel Ann Butler
I am finding writes that are you, but a different side of you. affection well conveyed within you words.
The flow of words are so smooth that the poem sooths the reasers
A melodious lovely poem on love. Love is the core desire of human being, a basic need, an art, a spore of art, a dream, a hope, and what not. I love it, it's lyrical flow. Bravo.
wow! Such a great piece! I fell in love with it!
