Happy Valentine’s Day


Valentines day

Forever at His side to walk

Forever at His side to walk —
The smaller of the two!
Brain of His Brain —
Blood of His Blood —
Two lives — One Being — now —

Forever of His fate to taste —
If grief — the largest part —
If joy — to put my piece away
For that beloved Heart —

All life — to know each other —
Whom we can never learn —
And bye and bye — a Change —
Called Heaven —
Rapt Neighborhoods of Men —
Just finding out — what puzzled us —
Without the lexicon!

Poem by: Emily Dickinson

Author: Elizabeth Melton Parsons

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2018.

  2. I like the idea of Heaven in Emily D’s poem of (paraphrased) “neighborhoods in Rapt attention.” I hope that we may one day see men and women cherishing our connections and becoming a Neighborhood of People, Elizabeth. ♡ Happy Valentine’s Day!

  12. Bonsoir ELIZABETH bonne St Valentin
    Vois-tu l’amitié est la plus belle des pensées avec l’amour
    Cet Amitié entre nous et un petit mot
    Qui veux dire tant de choses
    Mon petit passage pour te souhaiter
    une agréable soirée
    Je t’envoie une pluie de tendresse
    Sur un nuage de bisous parfumés
    Profite bien ,,, Bernard
