A New Love

A New Love  (dedicated to the Eternal city of Rome)


My old loves have fallen

from grace

No longer do they hold a


They have been relegated

to times past

For a new lover beckons

at last


He has always had a 

place in my heart

And this is from 

the very start

I considered him to be 

out of reach

Like a sand castle on 

a crumblling beach


Now he calls with

renewed vigour

For amongst a few

he is very 'de riguer'

He is strong and boldly


Forever there and forever



He has emerged a new

to seduce me again

Now older I shall feel

no pain

I willingly go and know 

that I shall live out

my days in his eternal afterglow

Old loves?

The joy of anticipating a new lover after shedding our old love usually makes one feel like a child again.

Your poem is like an excursion into new horizon. You take your reader along in your journey to experience your new lover.

Great piece, Keith.
