Poetry

In the UK, the clocks have gone back to GMT this morning.  So here’s another poem with an autumn flavour …

Love Passing By

When the night holds us together
Shall forgiveness mend the past
Will despair bring sunny weather
And heal our hearts at last?

In vain the hour must reap
What we gathered in the sun;
And love’s harvest now will weep
For the battle never won.

We promised love tomorrow
We preen with pride today
Now pride and love will borrow
The tears of yesterday.

While fragrance scents the garden
And the misty moon rides high;
The wind whispers a pardon
When love goes passing by.

[Part of a longer poem by Elizabeth Wesley]
