On This Dappled Dawn (Novelinee)

Poem By Gert Strydom

On this dappled silver shadowed dawn
you were in all my thoughts, were in my mind
and there was sheer loveliness in this morn,
without you to the beauty I was blind.
On different things my time I did spend
but in nothing could find any delight
and much too slowly along the day went
until the sheer black darkness of the night;
still I was lonely, you were out of sight.

Where for our love I have got great hope
while a moment becomes full of power
that acts transitory during a single hour,
where all of my life is in destiny's scope,
