"Waterfall"

O’er her peace now reposed

I stood guard to ensure

She would sleep unopposed

Dreaming love’s overture

 

In transfixed joyous awe

I subdued all my senses

Letting go to love’s Law

And its sweet consequences

 

Our future was clear

Without fear’s trepidation

I looked forward to years

Filled with love’s incarnation

 

We had dared to be free

From the doubts the lost teach

From the anxiety

All the doomsayers preach

 

She awakened to greet

The blank look on my face

Drawing nearer to meet

The next perfect embrace

 

Though we spoke not a word

Our hearts said it all

While we loved what we heard

Amidst love’s waterfall

 

 

John Christopher

1997

It is refreshing to read a poem not only with a strong and beautiful content, but also with good rhythm and rhyme. A good poet takes time to learn and obey the rules of poetry.

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.

Walt Whitman, American Poet (1819-1892)
