HEART'S DESIRE (c) By Polly Guerin

Let’s go to the land of our heart’s desire

Where the sweetness of life sets us on fire

There find safe harbor for fondest dreams

What need for you to care for schemes?

Come away with me oh foolish child

To the winter of our life and be so mild

I’ll kiss your lips and hold your legendary hand

For time is fleeting, do you not understand?

There’s not much more time for lingering on

Love’s sweet song is not in the abyss, beyond

Don’t let love pass with a goodbye glance

For now I’m saddened with circumstance

Oh come away with me my foolish child

With the fairy hand in hand we will glide

And mend all the broken heart’s weeping

And dance the magic of love before sleeping.

  1. Wonderful rhyme and imagery. It reminds me of Robert Louis Stevenson's poetry.
