Our Autumnal Renewal of Love Revised
Bethl

When I reworked this poem I dscovered a new meaning.

Like vintage wine  
 1
our affection deepens  
 2
with every year.  
 3
    
 4
Like aged cheese  
 5
our wisdom ripens  
 6
with the measure  
 7
of time.  
 8
    
 9
For the bells toll forth  
 10
and ring in the seasons  
 11
as our time together  
 12
ebbs and flows in the  
 13
steady rhythm of  
 14
familiar ritual.  
 15
    
 16
Each day presents  
 17
some promise  
 18
some peril  
 19
the darks and lights  
 20
rise and fall with  
 21
the predictable breath
 22
of setting suns  
 23
and rising moons.  
 24
    
 25
But just as the crest of  
 26
dawn hovers  
 27
like a stealth  
 28
and cunning bandit,  
 29
I still find refuge  
 30
in the warm  
 31
ivory folds of your  
 32
strong and loving arms.

Very nice poem, with a good comfortable feeling of Love. Seasons passing Love remains steady. Please read "Autumn Comes".
