Invitation to Love

Come when the nights are bright with stars
Or come when the moon is mellow;
Come when the sun his golden bars
Drops on the hay-field yellow.
Come in the twilight soft and gray,
Come in the night or come in the day,
Come, O love, whene'ver you may,
And you are welcome, welcome.

You are sweet, O Love, dear Love,
You are softas the nesting dove.
Come to my heart and bring it to rest
As the bird flies home to its welcome nest.

Come when my heart is full of grief
Or when my heart is merry;
Come with the falling of the leaf
Or with the redd'ning cherry.
come when the year's first blossom blows,
Come when the summer gleams and glows,
Come with the winter's drifting snows,
And you are welcome, welcome.

~ Paul Laurence Dunbar

Moonlit Sunshine

What do you do for me, with me, to me?
You send silver, sparkle, thunder, moonlit, sunshine, shirvers
through and through and though me

~ This poetry on love by Danielle Steele


From opposite ends of the earth we came,
trundling our bags, our treasures, our laughter, our hearts.

From opposite ends of the city we came,
from different points where we once stood,
so near, yet far apart.

From opposite ends of the world we came,
silent and cautious, unseen.

From opposite ends of a kiss we come,
to hold each other tight beneath a starry sky.

From opposite ends of a heart we smile,
two lives blended into one,
with no more opposites to approach,
but simply together,
laughing and young,
the beautiful man that you are,
and I.

~ Danielle Steele

The Wine of Love

The wine of Love is music,
And the feast of Love is song;
And when Love sits down to the banquet,
Love sits long:

Sits long and ariseth drunken,
But not with the feast and the wine;
He reeleth with his own heart,
That great rich Vine.

~ James Thomson

The Gift of Love

Every hopeful,
filled with dreams,
bright new,
hopeful schemes,
pastel shades
and Wedgewood skies,
first light
of loving
in your eyes,
soon to dim
and then you flee,
leaving me
alone with me,
the things I fear,
the things you said
burning rivers
in my head,
bereft of all
we shared,
my soul
so old,
so young,
so bare,
afraid of you,
of me,
of life,
of men.....
the bright new
begin again.
The landscape never
quite the same,
a different game,
aware at last
of what I know,
and think,
and am,
and feel,
the gift of love

~ Danielle Steele
