Morning Mist

Morning mist has fallen
First rays arrive, beware
Magic love, depart now
Lest you fall to it, a prey

Cherie, it’s time, I leave
A warning, guard shouts
All morning, I wish love
You to stay in my arms
Make love; yet charms
The majestic sun rising
Over yonder mountains
Fair maiden, I bid adieu
I return in mask of night

Madly in love, I am now
Night, the maestro, plays
Our tune; stay my darling
Let us entice the morning
To continue the mystery
Unite again, as magnolias
Blossom and magpies cry
Beyond; make the world
Dance before our eyes

The sun has risen, he who
Owns the maiden’s heart
Returns; love now depart
You’ll be lost to them too

I’ll love you and leave you
Wait for magnificent night
To bring me back to you
In this meadow, once again
Join souls in love’s melody

Come soon, and till moon
Sets on us, we’ll be one at
Banks of meandering river
Away from meddling eyes
Moments die till we meet

Lonely lovers, don’t fret
Melancholy should resist
In night’s mask, you unite
Leave under morning mist

The poetry is of a form, Aubade, which is a dramatic conversation between lovers, happening at dawn. The voice of warning is of a guard, the man wanting to leave, and the lady wanting him to stay. The warning voice urges the lovers to depart, as the morning dawns.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I’ll love you and leave you
    Wait for magnificent night
    To bring me back to you

    that’s very cool write here….
    Thanks for the magical work.

  2. This is the perfect poem for a mysterious misty morning! Strangely I like mist( same word in Dutch), because it hides the other world behind the white cloud.
    Thanks for your visit and kind words.

  3. love the mixture of voices an how you used the color to seperate them and commentate…very nicely done with the form…great one shot! now i depart before the mist…smiles.

  4. Wow Leo, this is so beautiful -“who owns the maiden’s heart” – absolutely love that image…this is my favorite of yours….so magical –beautiful piece…bkm

  5. Beautiful love story and the entreaties of the lady are so soulful.
    Her pleas are very gracefully answered by her beau to meet again at night.

    Night has enchanting descriptions in your poem an Aubade very well written.
    You can feel her love for him and his delicate complex understanding of her emotions.

    Made an excellent read in this form of poetry.

    • yeah.. the aubade is dramatic to such an effect, Nanka 🙂 glad you could feel the beautiful love story! yeah.. he wants to meet her at night too! 😀 it’s one of my favorite forms, this is the third one I’ve written! 🙂

  6. “make the world
    Dance before our eyes”

    Has a windswept romantic quality I found enjoyable. Nice One Shot!

  7. There is something gently honorific within this piece that touched me. I also enjoy your creative and innovative use of italics here. Nicely done, Leo.

  8. brilliant would also be an understatement for this Leo… the way u went about with every line, every word – it was just amazing….

    //Outstanding line:
    Madly in love, I am now
    Night, the maestro, plays
    Our tune; stay my darling
    Let us entice the morning
    To continue the mystery
    Unite again, as magnolias
    Blossom and magpies cry
    Beyond; make the world
    Dance before our eyes

    keep them coming buddy…

    Cheers!

  9. The passion of the lovers, the secrecy, and the danger is all displayed in this poem. The style is excellent. The wording great. Very impressive. Well done!

  10. Leo, Awesome poem. the way it started and ended.. chanceless man.. You have taught a new form to me.. Thanks for it.. Lovely message this poem carries..

    –Someone Is Special–

  11. Now this is Super awesome! I was thinking about getting up and stretching when I suddenly came across this.. and it was like a shower! Lovely!! :))

  12. ..the maestro plays our tune…this is lovely
    interesting poem form with the conversation
    …make the world dance before our eyes…
    some very nice words and imagery you use in your lines..great one shot

  13. I thought this was an interesting and beautiful poem. Well handled. I didn’t know and aubade defined this type of poem. I have a poem about a child that was set in the early morning that I named Aubade for Anna; but perhaps it’s mistitled if it should be a love poem. I never knew that. But I think you did a very good job with this one. Thanks, Gay @beachanny

    • Aubade is usually romantic, since it is a dialog between lovers, Holly Heir! perhaps the child poem was mistitled 🙂 it is possible 😀 glad you liked how I took this one! 🙂

  14. Beautiful piece you’ve got here, very romantic. Delightful imagery throughout, and wonderful phrasings…truly puts the poem to vision before our eyes. Lovely stuff!

  15. What a beautiful one.. the mist was definitely magical.. 😉
    I was almost transported to a wonderful dreamland.. would you give Company? LOLss
    Very well written My Friend- I am still dreaming- somebody- Pinch Me.. xox
