I'd rather be sorry for something that I did than for something I didn't do.
-Red Scott


I will not wish upon a star
For when it fails its beauty falls
Nor would I want to look so far
When my pounding heart to me calls
Awakened from its lonely sleep
By the light in your splendid eyes
With which the heavens cannot keep
For they are brighter than the skies.

I shall not tap upon the wood,
Three times, or less, or even more
For this sound, I know, never could
Protect me from all things sore
As your sweet voice
For when I hear you speak
My troubles have no choice
But to be small and meek.

All my fingers I do uncross
With them I’d rather reach for you
Ill luck receives another loss
When with one glance, my dear, you slew
The bad that lives inside me
And in its place, you did leave
Shoots of love that you must see
A love story we must weave

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Finally, a rhyming poet who can actually rhyme and fit the words naturally into the poem! It's a lovely poem and I look forward to reading more of your work!!

Wow this poem was really nice! It really flowed very nicely together. Most poems make my eyes roll all over the page but not this one. I'd give it a 6/5 but since that is impossible, it will be a 5/5. If you don't mind, could you check out some of my poems? I'd really appreciate it from a great poet like you :)!
