Em's Reply to Churning

Em A'fore

she stood radiant as the rose
yet honest as the star that glows
transfixed on thoughts of far
yet present, timeless as that Star

outstretched arms with flowers filled
heart throbbing to an ancient thrill
a beam of knowledge across her placid brow
bending only to what is here and now

he knelt at her knee with burdens great
she touched his heart with a happier fate
his tears washed her hands with a twist of glee
as she granted him entrance a'fore her knee

a fore night and fore ever lover she laughed anew
no more cowering in a life so torn and askew
his gentle heart of a poet's dear
and without further fore word they disappeared
