The Sun Has Burst The Sky

The sun has burst the sky
Because I love you
And the river its banks.

The sea laps the great rocks
Because I love you
And takes no heed of the moon dragging it away
And saying coldly 'Constancy is not for you'.
The blackbird fills the air
Because I love you
With spring and lawns and shadows falling on lawns.

The people walk in the street and laugh
I love you
And far down the river ships sound their hooters
Crazy with joy because I love you.

    When a heat is in love, the eyes see beauty all around, the ears hear a cuckoo's cooing from all directions.

    It’s a beautiful poem but didn’t we see it on front page just a few weeks back. I am sure there are many worthy poets and poems that Poemhunter can bring to light by providing space on its front page rather than using repetitions so often.

    /// it's a beautiful poem within romantic feelings; yes; when someone falls in love then it seems that the world is beautiful, fascinated exotic looking the surrounding; yes; everywhere it seems the birds flying, rivers tranquil flowing, mild breeze blowing, sweet drizzling shedding; it's all thru because of love you//
