Richard W. Reith


Love is
The soft red haze of the rising sun
Over the mirror of a gentle bay.
Love is
The cooling scent of mint in the air
Cooling the soul on a hot summer day.

Love is
The soft silky lips of your lover
Sharing a tender and calm loving kiss.
Love is
My carrying her heart on angel’s wing
To our universe of unending bliss.

Love is
The scent of earth after a gentle rain
The wonderful cry of a newborn child
Love is
Having wonder and joy and peace fill your soul
While it roams the heavens,
free and wild……
