Wild Love

Ah! You are not tame, my Beloved, nor do you play games,
But though you are wild, you can also be as mild as a child
And gentle as the Dove, though you’re the Lion from above,
So I do not approach you in fear when you are so very near;
With tears of joy in my eyes I lay my head upon your bosom
And sleep in peace and never cease to be thankful for you;
You hold me tight in the might of your nail-pierced arms,
Safe from all harms and alarms, and I am deeply enchanted
In your keep as I reap the blessings of the highest heavens
Leavened with love from above and compassion unending,
And you are always sending me gifts to lift my very spirit,
So how can I thank you, my Lion Lover, but to love you, too?

  1. So many coincidences are happening to me recently. I wrote a poem about a Spanish friend of mine who reminds me very much of a lion years ago and have just found it again. Will post in some day soon. The first post I have read this morning is yours and low and behold – it is a lion! Thanks for sharing – I really enjoyed this! 🙂

    1. Yes, I was quite fortunate to find such an appropriate photo on Pixabay (which has literally over 900,000 copyright-free photos from which to choose!) Thank you for you gracious comment. All the best to you w/blessings!
