The Darkling Thrush by M.A.Meddings

I heard the song of the darkling thrush
In the soft  half light of morning
A
nd he sang to me of immortal flower
Y
et soft his sentinal warning

Oh thee beware my boldest knight
O
f  the fountains nectared flow
F
or once you enter paradise there
You never more shall go

For you are captured willingly
Enchanted lost and sloth
F
or love has taken you in hold
A
nd rendered restless oft 

For the nectared flower's soporiphic charms
Are delightful rare indeed
The scented vale renders you pale
Thus burgioning your needs  

the senses all will take your o'er
And cause the blood to rush
Beware your heart oh gentle knight
Thus sang the darkling thrush

I miss you my darling. I write to you knowing you will never read but i must communicate however I can. Without you my life is empty. I love you and will always love you. My favorite poet and the love of my life. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxyblyvm

The Paladin is back in the season of flowers!
This subtly erotic poem would make a beautiful song lyrics, wouldn't it :)
