Dove of the Morning (inspired by the Song of Solemon)

How beautiful and pleasing
You are with your delights
Your scent as if crushed lillies
Kiss your skin each night

Sixty birds of morning there may be
But my dove, you alone are ever she
The only one who captivates my soul
The only one with power to set me free

Place me like a lock upon your heart
My sweet, I'll forever do the same
For love, unyielding as the grave
Burns within; an everlasting flame

Awake! thee wind from the north
Carry my dove through the heat of the night
That I might meet her in the sky
My bride; my beauty delight

Dreams Unseen

The waking world leaves me ne’r content
My sweet if there’s no place for you and I
To find ourselves, to love and ne’r repent
To live, to love, to dream, and then to die

Beneath the sky above this dreamful sleep
I’ll find you there in hope or passions eye
And pray you seek me well and find me deep
Your heart content to love one such as I

But if you find me not in slumbers womb
And passions flame has not the chance to light
Forget me not or to my early tomb
This heart will surely break and rend the night

Yet, sleep you well, my love my timeless muse
And wait anon ’til morrow’s dreams pursue
 
Christopher Thor Britt
   
 

   
   
 

  11.     

Eclipse

Shadows play 'neath the sleepy sky
As the moon waxes full and rises high
Chasing, then fleeing the brightness of day
Mindful that her glory in time will soon wane

The sun e'er regal in brilliant array
And proud to lord o'er all the day
Knows t'is she who holds his praise
Her face commands his constant gaze

Her heart there also yearns for he
Aches to embrace him passionately
So to his bed she'll sometimes stray
To kiss her love, the Lord of Day

When they meet and there, embrace
And all be hidden from each face
Time near stops for those below
Though none feel shame at such a show

The world does patiently wait and abide
This cycle unswerving that pushes the tide
It feeds the poet such favor and boon
That causes young lovers...and dogs to swoon

O'er this heavenly tryst of the sun and moon.

  12.     

Endless Night

Barely is man alive before
Death comes to claim his bride.
Thus betrothed we must abide
Less willing, the groom to meet

Death feigns to court us from the rift of
Time and space. He sends his gifts of
War and plague and violent shifts
His harvest soon to reap

When the endless night does come and
Life upon the Earth is done
No place for wanton souls to run
Their maker soon will meet

If you die before you wake and
Find you’ve made a grave mistake
Your prayers, too little and much too late
May find deaf ears to boot

But, if you wake before you die and
Take the blinders from your eyes
You’ll see that death is but a lie and
Live to see the truth
