To Know Love

by Patti Richards
(St Julians, Malta)


To know love's adoring grace
Basked in its joy and divine embrace
Taken to heights of euphoric bliss
Bathed in passion of lingered kiss

To know this feeling of desirous ache
Climatic waves my breath to take
Sheer delight of intimate caress
Raging covet and soul possessed

Vaulted arched and poised to break
Gasping pants and breath intake
Eclipses secrets of immortal time
Eyes behold of love divine

Energy spent and passion quelled
Ardent fervour wearily felled
Entwined lovers' tender release
A tranquil heart, a soul at peace
