Love’s Gleaning Tide – ❣

The Sweet Innocence of Love 💕

Draw not away from thy hands, my love,

With wind alone, the branches move,

And though the leaves are scant above

The Autumn shall not shame us.

Say; Let the world wax cold and drear,

What is the worst of all the year But life, and what can hurt us, dear,

Or death, and who shall blame us?

Ah, when the summer comes again

How shall we say, we sowed in vain?

The root was joy, the stem was pain

The ear a nameless blending.

The root is dead and gone, my love,

The stem’s a rod our truth to prove;

The ear is stored for naught to move

Till heaven and earth have ended. ~


Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
