When Comes This Spring Called Love?

February 16, 2013

A Poem By Edward Michael Novick (circa 1987)


Blasted wind that blows!
(Zephyr’s distant kin)
Which bites at every nerve and stings
Like salt in an open wound
On this frigid winter’s day.

But ’tis not this cold that vexes me
As does this frost of my heart
Biting, numbing – the fringes of my soul.

For true love, like a vernal flower did bloom
And followed with leonine passion!
But like the season – it changed.

Thus three years has this winter stayed
Being no companion, but like a captor,
Holding my soul in a prison
with bars forged of ice.

Though visitors I have had, none have touched
Nor moved, nor melted these bars
Thus emancipating this captive man
from within the walls of solitude.

When comes this Spring called Love?

    Never give up on finding love. It will find you when you least expect it. Who knows maybe even a fan at one of your baseball games! Just remember inner beauty is a far better treasure although it takes time and is harder to find. good luck.

My blog is a satire for all with stories, adventures, and opinions based on facts with minimal evidence and maximum wit. In short, a chronicle of my life. I hope you enjoy perusing my random banter, hilarious adventures, short stories with imaginative characters and hidden meanings, my unique wit, interests in pop culture and oddball opinions.
