Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of the Poetry Corner! Please join me in welcoming Ed Ireland and a poem from his book, Forgotten Treasure. 🙂
Passion’s Wings by Ed Ireland
On golden wings of promise,
like a ship that crosses the sea,
my heart longs to be with you.
Unburdened, full, and free.
Twas in the dawn of my time
brought from ash and fire.
Your touch guided my path
and found my secret desire.
Through sword and talon of steel,
illuminated in heroic flame.
Together we conquered all we saw.
The Gods called out your name.
Glory was ours but a faithless act,
allowed the enemy to take my heart.
Imprisoned it in a snowy globe,
To keep our love apart.
But a stranger came, a thief at night,
and stole the globe away.
Bringing it to a distant shore,
in the warmth of a brand new day.
And so it was the sun touched me,
With all its warm, healing rays.
And soon my fires lit once more,
ending my prisoned days.
So now I search the wide, wide Earth,
Trying to find where you can be
On golden wings of passions flight
About the Poem: Your Phoenix flies to your memory. The story of the Phoenix. The mythical firebird becomes the symbol of the passion between two lovers. When they separate the fire dwindles and flickers out. The Phoenix was lucky when his prison was returned to the sun but now spends his days looking for something gone forever.
Awesome poem! Thanks for sharing, Ed! 🙂
