The Love Letter (1904), Nina Hardy You Are a Poem
You are a poem
One that is truly blithesome Of a perfect form With its words very pleasant And placed to be so fragrant
Over and over
Words of love you do offer Makes me warm inside Putting a glow on my face Not a single word I’ll waste
Your poem isn’t long
But the words are very strong When talking of love As if words are carved in stone Not ever to be outgrown
When you are not near
In your poem you appear How it makes me smile Fingers float across the page With you I am now engaged
Coming to the end
I reach for a dividend To read it again Every word I read out loud With such force they’ll reach a cloud

There’s No Greater Love
The beauty of your smile let me ingest
Let it wallow ever deep within me As to put my feelings softly at rest.
Speak those velvety words I love to hear Ones that draw me ever closer to you As they flow rhythmically in my ear.
Caress me gently at your warming breast That my heart may float so effortlessly While I offer to you my next request.
Let us make love under the many stars, Our passion greater than Venus and Mars.
Man and Woman
Oh let me look deeply into your eyes
So I can see the fullness of your soul Will it match the happiness of your guise Or is there darkness that’s taken control
To be without you is my greatest fear
Life to be an ocean of emptiness My feelings for you not a mere veneer For it is you who gives me completeness
Not my intent to be super selfish
It is you whom I wish the very best Your internal strife I wish to banish For your steady peace I shall never rest
It is my love for you that drives me so
Confide in me to help make your heart glow Image credit:
I carve his name into this silent tree
With the hope it would give up its secret Cut it deep to reveal his love of me Knowing well the answer I may regret
My flesh to him I did capitulate
To show my feelings are ever so strong Desiring my future not left to fate While praying what I ceded was not wrong
What I gave to him cannot be undone
Nor shall I choose a life of misery For love isn’t a game that needs to be won Or falling to ones knees making thy plea
The tree is now bleeding with its answer
I smile tasting the sweetness of amber
Niagara Falls* Love Is Like
Love is like a wild waterfall
And louder than a lion’s roar. Into your heart fast to install. Love is like a wild waterfall That makes you over ten feet tall With wings that to heaven you’ll soar. Love is like a wild waterfall And louder than a lion’s roar.
