Another love song





Sing me another love song
Because I have forgotten
Your affection in a letter

The sun has been hiding
Behind snow covered hills
Do you recall spring nights

Your hands cupping my face
With tender persuasion
That’s what I like

Making love with no words
Just the sound of the rain falling
Just the hush of leaves swaying

And as you kiss me
with a gentle dedication, I’ll recall
the words of another love song




Love And Affection 1976

  1. Oh, this is so beautiful! Favorite stanza:

    Making love with no words
    Just the sound of the rain falling
    Just the hush of leaves swaying

    Your words this morning are a feast for my senses.

  3. Have to agree with Mary and Brian, that was a great stanza. Agreeing with Brian, something has to be wrong there...lol...no words needed, as your shine through.

  4. Love that line 'gentle dedication'--says so much about the relationship. An excellent love poem and great take on the prompt, Heaven.

  5. For me its the cupping of the face with tender persuasion, well the rain and leaves too, and the sun behind the hills--but the tender persuasion sounds like a reminder--which is what you ask for in the poem--sweet love poem. K.

  7. You've done it again, Heaven. Incredibly sensual but subtly so. I've missed being here. My favourite lines:

    "Your hands cupping my face
    With tender persuasion
    That’s what I like

    Making love with no words
    Just the sound of the rain falling
    Just the hush of leaves swaying"

    Getting hot in here...I think I need a shower!

  22. Lovely. I like the reference to winter's hidden sun, and the comment about spring, which infers things changed during the intervening seasons.......well done!

  23. Haha. I'm speechless. My boyfriend is a musician and there have been times, lots of times, when I lay on my bed in the night, listening to him playing yet another love song on his guitar for me. You have captured those special moments so vividly in your words. I loved it. :)

  24. this is sooooo beautiful <3 <3

    As everyone else, I loved these lines -

    "Making love with no words
    Just the sound of the rain falling
    Just the hush of leaves swaying

    And as you kiss me
    with a gentle dedication, I’ll recall
    the words of another love song"

    Loved the image of being kissed with another song dedicated to you ... awesome!
