The Web Poetry Corner - M A Heathcote - With love ever-loving to avow

With love ever-loving to avow

by

M A Heathcote

I sang you a love song...
Strong as an oak
Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Ding-dong!
Amour, amour, amour...

Weak to the stroke
Centre to the core
The wheel and spoke.
Amour, amour, amour...

I sang you a love song...
A tune without a note!
Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Ding-dong!
Amour, amour, amour...

Did I not, in you, emote?
A flickering cleric’s candle
An opus orchestral score
Harmoniously, virile!

I sang you a love song...
A burning green phoenix
Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Ding-dong!
Amour, amour, amour...

I dote
A songbird I caw I wrote
In flesh-tone onyx
The flowers in your coke...

I sang you a love song...
With a millstone in my throat
Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Ding-dong!
Amour, amour, amour...

I grinded out a melody
Up-held the devils tote
A jazz scene in rhapsody
I awed in his boat.

I sang you a love song...
In unadulterated harmony
Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Ding-dong!
Amour, amour, amour...

I separated he wheat
Surly, from the chaff
Beaten with a staff
Upbeat, browbeat.
For the fishes and the loafs
Till; she put back on her clothes

I sang you a love song....
A weeping willow
Ding-dong! Ding-dong!
Ding-dong!
Amour, amour, amour...
A cherry orchard torso
On the bough
With love ever-loving to avow.
