Thyme, Honey and Clove…

Honey and Clove
Ribbons in Her Auburn waves
She wove
A daughter of Sunlight
framed in brown
Would place upon
my head
a Flowered Crown
And kisses upon
my cheeks
So sweet
My pretentious
heart misses
a beat
Her voice
A song of
Springtime Faire
would bend
my knee
an oath to swear
That I’ll forsake
Both Country and Crown
to feel her touch
of Thistle down
Perchance to know
Her secrets
and thereby
pledge Her love
to keep
Inside my Heart
til Death recall
my spirit or hers
beyond that wall
If she should go
before my light
I’ll dream of Her
each following Night
Thyme, Honey and Clove
Ribbons in her Auburn waves
Were wove
Her ghost, I’ll dream
but will never feel
My heart
the morning light
Will steal

    A wonderful love poem to the speakers sweetheart. A courtly love I think. So sad she dies, makes me think of Wordsworth poem a bit ” A violet by a mossy stone that none but I could see.” Not sure the name of the poem at the moment.
