Ask him to find me an acre of land,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Between the salt water and the sea-strand,
For then he'll be a true love of mine.

Ask him to plough it with a lamb's horn,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
And sow it all over with one peppercorn,
For then he'll be a true love of mine.

Ask him to reap it with a sickle of leather,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
And gather it up with a rope made of heather,
For then he'll be a true love of mine.

When he has done and finished his work,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Ask him to come for his cambric shirt,
For then he'll be a true love of mine.

If you say that you can't, then I shall reply,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
Oh, Let me know that at least you will try,
Or you'll never be a true love of mine.

Love imposes impossible tasks,
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme,
But none more than any heart would ask,
I must know you're a true love of mine.

If you're listening, please come. I'm tired. Very close to losing heart. Not to mention bored. Please.

Forever and a day

Yet again you beseech things so bland; -
Herbs with aromas I cannot stand.
Can't you get a whiff of my subtle love?
Follow it and it'll lead you to a secret trove.

Look in there and you shall lose your self;
Melt into smoke and waft like an elf.
From one starry dream to another;
Just you and me, alone together.

Standing by this inglenook,
Feeling like a lonely spook,
I've beckoned you for very long,
Waiting for you to pen me a song.

Show me your original trait;
And fructify my cheerless wait.
For I'm on the verge of spinning out;
Of this drab and unrewarding spout.

Remind your heart of its truest love,
Look through its hole and ask how;
Then hand me a virgin dawning;
And end my dour, desolate spawning.

We'll hold hands and walk on a tether;
From paradise, all the way to the nether.
But this time, bring me all your love and stay -
Forever and a day.

Brilliant response! And I haven't been able to trace the poem. Who is this and where is the poem from? Please, please tell me.

You obviously can't trace a line of it. I wrote it for you, you twit. Didn't you feel it after reading it?


as it is related to poem see if you like this one by MLTR

In my search for freedom
and peace of mind
I've left the memories behind
Wanna start a new life
but it seems to be rather absurd
when I know the truth
is that I always think of you

Someday someway
together we will be baby
I will take and you will take your time
We'll wait for our fate
cos' nobody owns us baby
We can shake we can shake the rock

Try to throw the picture out of my mind
try to leave the memories behind
Here by the ocean
wave's carry voices from you
Do you know the truth
I am thinking of you too

Someday someway
together we will be baby...

The love we had together
just fades away in time
And now you've got your own world
and I guess I've got mine
But the passion that you planted
in the middle of my heart
is a passion that will never stop

I'm a delusion angel
I'm a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think
Don't want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from
We have no idea where we're going
Lodged in life
Like branches in a river
Flowing downstream
Caught in the current
I'll carry you
You'll carry me
That's how it could be
Don't you know me?
Don't you know me by now?

Why you still waiting? I am here my love :)

Bhavya said...

@ Divi- Muah..once you recognized tht I was human, I called off the wait honey.

@ anonymous- Wow! I really have no idea who you are, though I must say, I am really flattered (assuming immodestly that the poetry's directed at me). Please tell me who you are..I'm dying to know. On another forum if not this one. Plis tell!! I shall consider your case most favourably :)

since this is perhaps my last post here i will confess it most certainly is directed at you.your immodesty is vindicated!sometimes,the charm lies in the mystery though how i wish at times you knew it was called out and it touched a chord and someone did times its sufficient to keep us going without losing faith. that someone can understand and trust me,someone(thats me,btw) does.just remember,carry on without losing times,he may make you times, he may drive you crazy with impatience.but come he will.cheers!!

Divi you're my true love

Divya said...

Beauty and grace not to mention charm
Happy memories of thy company abound
Verily I would spend a lifetime with thee
Your voice resonates with its musical sound
And every moment I shall cherish of this love, newfound

Not bad eh? :)

Bhavya said...

Hehe..if only you mean it seriously

Deep she blushes, when you tickle or embarass
Innocent and insensitive, this lady to impress you'll have to be a rockstar
Very wild and bold be, or just name your daughter sillyily :)
You could also be geeky and cute with glasses
Alas, to please you'll have to be weird, so that rules out me!
