Little I ask
my wants are few*
no money do I beg for
only time with you.
Is that enough
our love to feed anew?
Thy breath I feel upon my skin
let’s steal an hour or two.
Prompt Inspiration: Carry On Tuesday
*Little I ask, my wants are few: the first line of Oliver Wendell Holmes’ poem Contentment
Spending time with the loved one is heavenly.
The structure and language of your poem ring on Shakespeare, yet the contemporary comes through, too. Perhaps if Shakespeare were alive today he might write something like this. : )
a blissful read!
THe longing for the feel of a lover's breath against the skin is such a perfect image of love's little wants.
"Thy breath," such a fetching phrase. This was beautifully crafted, and to the point... just as spontaneous as the best lovers are.
I honestly didn't know that OW Holmes wrote poetry! Thanks for teaching me something new. Peace, Amy
Sounds like good priorities. The people we love are the most important.
Phew, sometimes time's the most precious thing.
Ah, companionship with a loved one... Love it!
I like the ambiguity of this one: is she blissful or desperate?
a subtle sensuality ~ just a hint. i love this! ♥
give me a lifetime!
