Love Is

Love Is

Love is

Seeing your face in a fresh morning light

A bowl and two spoons with Angel Delight

Knowing there’s days when we kiss and don’t fight.

Love is

 

Love is

Carving our names in the heart of the oak

You adjusting my tie, so I don’t choke

Sprinting like Usain through bonfire smoke

Love is

 

Love is

Holding hands under dim lit gazebos

With our last fiver, dining Al Fresco

At a school dance, the Pogo not Disco

Love is

 

Love is

Snoring together in front of the telly

Handling my socks, despite them being smelly

On the A40,  giving it welly

Love is

 

Love is

Albums and photos, we’ve still yet to see

Pebbles at Brighton, tide up to our knees

Fish and chip headlines, for you and for me

Love is

Dedicated to my beautiful wife Sarah (Mrs.D). Without her love and support, the pen just wouldn’t flow.

I love this, Davy. Clever of you to use ‘Usain’ without forcing the rhyme with his surname.

Once again you help dispel the stereotypical ‘man of few words’ image of the northern male. A beautiful and personal write marra.

Oh so beautiful…you’ve captured love, the many forms it takes in the momentary and in the ordinary of every day. Blessings to you and Sarah. ♥♥♥

Davy D, didn’t I say the Northern poets are the romantics. How you prove me right. This is so loving and fun at the same time. Humour is part of love. You start off so very dreamy and intersperse with every day events. All shared with love and humour.
Happy Valentine to you and Sarah.

    Thank you Miriam for your kind words and hope you had a good day too. Mrs. D whisked me away for an afternoon English Tea and then on to the pics to see Darkest Hour. I am glad you enjoyed the poem and beneath the concrete us Northern Poets do have a little love 🙂

    Thank you for your kind words Chuck and they are most appreciated. It helps when you have a beautiful lady to share them with. Now Mrs. D has been revealed she will be making a few more appearances 🙂

      You are so welcome! I really loved it! I will look forward to those appearances! You can give her my congratulations or depending on her reception of the idea my condolences! It doesn’t get much better than to have a beautiful lady that loves you no matter what? I don’t know about you but I often think of Groucho Marx comment, Why would I want to belong to a club that’s willing to have me as a member?? I should probably not worry. Karen, said I was off probation after 15 years! Ha!

      LoL Chuck, Karen sounds like a good lady and I have lived by GM’s comment for years. It is always better to look into the crowd than be a part of it. I think that is why we write poetry 🙂

Woo hoo! Isn’t it fabulous when you find yourself with a few minutes peace and type a word into the the search bar of wordpress .. in this case ‘love’ … and find nuggets of beauty such as this poem you penned for yourself and your Sarah. It was kind on the eye as well as fuel for the belly of literary expectation. I shall follow you now and enjoy more I am sure.

In other case, love is seeing him to go without saying “good bye” and you are still waiting for him without any reason.
