My Poem.

I love this poem so very much. And I admire all poets. I am working on my poetry skills... it's not going so well. So, I instead am going to share this with you. Being a lover of love, it is amazingly romantic and wonderful to me; I do hope you love it as much as I.




Invitation to Love 
BY PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR


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’er you may,
And you are welcome, welcome.

You are sweet, O Love, dear Love,
You are soft as 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.

That is such a cute poem! My favorite is by Emily Dickinson.

They might not need me; but they might. I'll let my head be just in sight; a smile as small as mine might be precisely their necessity.
-Emily Dickinson
