They Belong To You
How shall I honor you my love?
The Sistine Chapel has been painted,
And the Taj Mahal already built.
I could try composing a concerto,
Or some symphony to transcend time.
Although I am no master poet,
Nor bard with words sublime.
I cannot lasso the moon
Or gift you with the stars.
All of these magical things
Are beyond my mortal reach.
I would gladly prostrate myself
Before you, and sit
Happily at your feet.
Or remain completely still,
Until you bid me speak.
I cannot encircle the heavens,
Or cast forth the chains of hell.
But I can follow where you lead,
and in to the darkness, dwell.
I have no riches to share,
Nor hope of great acclaim.
I am unworthy of your love,
Yet, I hope my devotion will do.
I cannot offer up my blood,
My breath, or  eternal soul
Because, my love,
They already belong to you.
Author's Notes:

Many thanks ML!

Words alone cannot express the emotions and the passion that is described in this poem.Your heart glows like the stars in the night and you heart beats like the ocean waves comforting yet so calming and real. You my poetic friend have a heart of gold and that is the greatest treasure you can ever give to someone else Because it is unconditional. This poem is beyond beautiful .Keep writing my poetic friend, because you are so gifted and talented beyond the words that you write. You have been so blessed deep within the very core of your soul.Thank you for being you and more then anything thank you for sharing this poem with all of us.

Though you can not lasso the moon, ye sure got yer claws in me heart.

Wow... that's devotion. And humility. You sure got my arse kicked on humility, babe! More power to you! I think you sold yourself short on writing ability, though. You got plenty.

Comment By: FreeAntony Frank on May 1, 2006 07:47:06 AM Report
You definitely deserved the award.
Excellent poem.


Comment By: FreeAdam on April 25, 2006 01:13:54 AM Report
the first 11 lines.... i like.. but then the poem takes a turn... it loses what i feel is the equality of love... maybe its my reason or my young age.. but the thought of throwing oneself to another in the name of love (although a romantic gestur as it is) does not appeal to my sense of how it should be.. yet there is always the possiblity that i've truely misunderstood your meaning and this is all futile crtique... still the words express the powerful emotion felt by the speaker, that is evident... and so it is not undeserving of the award.. but it is certain that i do not share this outlook on love with you... like i said you expressed your outlook on it well and so congratulations on the reward, and i hope that i may see a comment or two from you on my poetry and may it be as honest as my own of yours.
best regards

You write well and with the right emotions
fused into your poems.
It's what makes it real.
Great write.

This is love at its greatest, Jody...I loved the sentiment that was so evident in each line.
But you know me and love poetry, lol...I'm a sucker for it!
Hugs and love ya

It's lost its baroque quality. It was obviously edited by someone who doesn't get laid much.
Comment By: FreePaul Peter McLean on March 30, 2006 04:57:01 PM Report
This is quite a catalogue of romantic statements. I liked the way you used the occasional rhyme, and alliteration, and the last declaration was the most powerful of all. Great work.
Comment By: FreeCorvus Mellon on March 30, 2006 03:49:20 PM Report
I must say Sorceress, this piece is just as beautiful as it can be. It bespeaks great devotion and passion. What a vision of love and loving. I have just started to write and I hope to some day be half as talented as you are. I think you are the best writer here. Honestly, I have read a great deal of poetry, but none touches me the way yours does.. Keep writing and God bless you and your pen.

The second half intensifies significantly. Writing tends to lead the mind deeper in the very process. The first part is rather like Elton John's Your Song revisited. The writing in the second part is very fine. The poem could begin with "I cannot encircle the heavens.... if you dispense with the Cyrano bluster. Something a bit clumsy with "Yet hope my devotion will do. Perhaps "Yet hope my devotion sane." Quite sweeping and well-executed. You're on a fantastic rung; I wouldn't raise your voice any higher just yet.

This is one of the loveliest poems you have written. Classic form and language that I have come to love. There is a reason you received your recent award and it's evident here. jp
Comment By: FreeLeonard Wilson on March 29, 2006 08:34:43 PM Report
WOW!!...This is beautifully put together, Aces..Just a joy to read. That's what I call unconditional love. I'll differ with you on the master poet part. In my book,you've arrived..Mary Allan Poe couldn't have done any better...
Comment By: PremiumKeith Overstreet on March 29, 2006 07:59:43 PM Report
A beautiful poem of love. A very lucky man indeed. But he would only let stand at his side as equals not below him or behind him.
I hope you write more love poems. I very much enjoyed this piece.
Comment By: FreeCeeCee on March 29, 2006 07:29:14 PM Report

This was beautiful...I especially liked your lines, "I cannot lasso the moon Or gift you with the stars". Your use of the word gift rather than give tied in the "t" in stars.

Again, very, very nice!

Wonderfully charming and quaint without a hint of mawkishness or the maudlin. A very proper love poem, Lady Jolen! YLM

Soo romantic, Jody... I liked the pace and sound Who says you are no master poet? They're wrong!
Loved the "lasso the moon" reference to one of my all-time fave movies.

Ah, dear Sorceress, your magnificent poem is worthy of such a great love. ML

Nice reference to the Taj Mahal, posibly the most romantic collection of bricks and plaster in the world :-)
Very sweet sorceress.

beautiful dedication to love Jody.

Comment By: PremiumDavid Turner on March 29, 2006 07:12:25 AM Report
A good contrast of negatives and positives in the declaration of love Jolen - it is always the little things that matter most I think.
Lucky man whherever he is.

wow, love and devotion abounds in these words! Your passion is very evident here Jody, great write! Henry
