Cherished



You are cherished
rose print, tucked in my memory
You are cherished
sunset, orange-framed, untarnished  
as sea bore you on ivory
hands, cradled vessel…. till blurry-

You are cherished

Poetry form:   Rondelet:   This is a typical French form that uses a refrain and two rhymes. The first, third and last line are four syllables or two feet, and the four lines remaining are eight syllables or four feet.  This gives a rhyme scheme of: A. b. A. a. b. b. A

  22. I love the theme of your poem - it is so sweet and light - like a floating dream. No, there is a better description - "as sea bore you on ivory". :-)

  23. You make "beautiful" look easy. Of course, it usually isn't.

  24. ... on second thoughts, the poem might just be more wistful than light and dreamy. On second reading, the poem is a remembrance of somebody who is gone.

    I guess, that us what good poetry is all about - there are many layers to it. :-)
