ode to a wintry night

This tongue shall not speak so plainly

Not ‘til the heavens ray shine brightly

Mercy be given for this laboured heart

For no healing be undone with soul depart

A desolation within the deepest bosom

Where light would not flourish, even to blossom 

From thy lips thus this bliss impart

Wherefore sorrowful kiss could heal this wounding tart

Thine I am, and seek to be evermore

Let thy heart fly and be free to soar

If thou wilt that I thrive, take good heed to me

For I surrender endlessly to thee

Forsake me not on this dreadful night

Nor to draw me into the dark without a light

Be it as it may and much better see for me than I can say

For thine love doth send its way

Should all my sorrows be undone

Leave this heart to love with none

Hi! My pen name is Joe Valentine or JV for short. I started writing when I was in high school over 20 years ago. I haven't had the opportunity to pursue my love of writing for quite some time and I thought I'd try to start it up again. A few things I enjoy is poetry, mostly Shakespeare and most of his Tragic plays. I often feel the words speak to me every time I read them. I also enjoy reading other great poets with the likes of Edgar Allen Poe, Emily Dickinson, Maya Angelou to name a few. I hope to share my work and experiences through my blog and eventually try to be published--one can dream! So keep on dreaming until it becomes a reality!
