On Seynt Valentynes Day

February 25, 2011

♥ ♥ ♥  This lovely poem was my Gnomie´s Valentine this year ♥ ♥ ♥

in the cool of the garden
after supper…

…there is no merit
…in obedience to human traditions
…that supersede God’s commandments

…is it that i have heard it so much
…or misunderstand its intent
…that i ignore conviction?

a kiss and worship
from the heart,
the indwelling welling
to love, honor, and obey
is what i give you freely eagerly each day

offering unasked
this unmasked valentine
of sacrificial love
not fictitious romance
or Chaucer’s choice ideal

for to do so otherwise
unwise i would be
and but be betraying you with a kiss

in the cool of the garden
after supper.

    Beautiful poem! I especially love the way it circles back around to the beginning at the end.
