NP3 – Love: Let Sleeping Love Lie


Please read and enjoy the work of a talented writer.

When Almonds Blossom

Poem #4. This poem is in free verse. I was trying to focus on more description, emotion and stronger lines. I also was attempting to follow some of T. S. Eliot’s advice:

“Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.”

So, I stole a line each from three other poems and re-worked them.  Hopefully, they are better or at least different.

This topic, saving your heart and emotions for your future spouse is very important for me.  We often don’t realize that it is not only our physical virginity that can be lost, we can lose our hearts and emotional love as well. I have tried to save myself, mind, emotions, and body, and want to encourage both those who have made this decision and those who learned this hard lesson too late.
