I came across a notebook the other day which contained a poem I wrote around eight or so years ago which was based on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Today being national poetry day I thought I’d share it with you along with this weeks wedding inspiration.
In crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks,
I see my wounded foe,
But in our holy palmer’s kiss,
I see my daunted rose.
Oh, sweet eastern sun,
In solemn slumbers flame,
I perceive a lurid vision,
A delusion of our pain,
I see my lady, I see my love,
As our star-crossed passion blooms,
Thou art the young of my despised,
Birthed from the sacred virgin’s womb.
