ctree2Once upon a time, a long, long time ago now, I needed a love poem for our February SCA newsletter because — well, Valentine’s Day falls in February. It was December at the time, but I didn’t then, and don’t now, believe in leaving things until the last minute, so I got busy. I probably should have run this a couple of months ago in honor of Valentine’s Day 2014, but what can I say? I didn’t.

So let’s pretend there’s a holiday for Lovers, and not just for Fools in April — or possibly to celebrate Foolish Lovers! We all know there are plenty of those, and maybe it’s time they were honored!!!. We’ll call it St. Valentino’s Day in honor of old Rudolph of silver screen fame!

So here’s a verse for St. Valentino’s Day!

“When Love Awakens”

When love awakens to the dawn, from dreams to dreaming born,
And lips smile softly in the light of an enchanted morn;
When eyes with tenderness are misted, warm and soft as down,
And fingertips discover joys the eyes have never found;
When ears are touched with words as sweet as honey in the comb,
And hearts hear music more divine than Bards have ever known;
When two souls join together, by the chains of loving bound,
And two songs intermingle to create empyrean sound
The world is touched with magic, and the music of the spheres
Like vintage wine flows o’er the stars to fall on lovers’ ears,
And melody is twice entwined, divine and mortal wed,
As human hearts, in love, are on immortal viands fed.
Then shall the wandering spirit rest, its earthly cares outflown,
To slumber peacefully at last, and never wake alone.

[December 6th, 1991]
