The Beloved

It is enough of honor for one lifetime
To have known you better than the rest have known,
This shadows and the oclors of your voice,
Your will, immutable and still as stone.

The shy heart, so lonely and so gay,
The sad laughter and the pride of pride,
The tenderess, the depth of tenderness
Rich as the earth, and wide as heaven is wide.

~ Sara Teasdale

Time and Again

time and again, however well we know the landscapwe of love,
and the little church-yard with lamenting names,
and the frightfully silent ravine wherein all the others end:
time and again we go out two together,
under the old trees, lie down again and again
between teh flowers, face to face with the sky.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

I Love You

I love you for what you are, but I
love you
yet more for what you are going to

I love you not so much for your
as for your ideals.
I pray for your desires that they may
be great,
rahter than for your satisfactions,
which may be so hazardously little.
Youare going forward toward
something great.
I am on the way with you,
and therefore I love you.

~ Carl Sandburg

The Love Poem

Breeze skipping over water,
Water reflecting lights strung over the bridge,
Lights shining in your eyes.

The fresh, bold feeling of something new,
As winter melts into liquid spring,
And summer takes shape and ripens alongside love.

The petals from the flowering trees, snow for the summer,
Floating down around us as we kiss,
Once, twice, then forever.

You aren't just my sunshine.
You're my sun.

~ Sara McDermott
