With Thee Conversing I Forget All Time
Hand in hand we walk along
This spring like day of birds and song
With thee conversing I forget all time
We smile and dream as up we climb
Swing and laugh, jump and sing
You my queen, and I your king.

This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "Kenia's Wednesday Challenge". This was HARD for me to do as I had to find a poet I don't like and find one line I do like from said poet and build a poem around it. I am embarrassed to say I do NOT like John Milton. A friend recommended "Paradise Lost" to me long ago and I have tried numerous times to read it and I find it an impossibly tedious poem to read. I know it is a classic and loved by many and I do keep it on my shelf thinking maybe someday I will appreciate it. The line I used is the title underlined and is in the Paradise Lost Book IV (between 635-640) We were supposed to link the poem (we hate) ha ... I have linked you to "Paradise Lost STUDY GUIDE - A simple guide to John Milton's complicated masterpiece" ... Here is a fun way to spend you summer ;P
By the way...
I have a new "side blog" called i & I. It is all about spontaneous photography, compositions that catch my eye, sweet moments that can't be choreographed. They won't be pixel perfect and will often be a bit grainy as they are from my iPhone (the above is an example of my son and his friend :) (and yes, my friend and I wish arranged marriages come back in vogue). I invite you to hop on over now and again to "i & I" and ENJOY!
