Wild nights – Wild nights!

It’s been a while since I posted a real love poem here. One that brings passion with every word, every line. Luckily, I still had Emily Dickinson up my sleeve. For a woman who lived secluded from the rest of the world for most of her life, she’s able to capture that passion remarkably well…

Wild nights – Wild nights!
Were I with thee
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!

Futile – the winds –
To a Heart in port –
Done with the Compass –
Done with the Chart!

Rowing in Eden –
Ah – the Sea!
Might I but moor – tonight –
In thee!

Emily Dickinson
