Dear Miss Austen

Whilst catching up on a little Jane Austen (my favorite author), I recalled a poem I wrote a while ago and published on an old blog….

Dear  Miss Austen…

I wish you were here today

I’m sure we would be friends

I would express my true admiration

Of that I’d not pretend

We could write a pretty letter

Of our devoted love

Or would you email me?

Perhaps that would be good

The words would be the same

Straight from the heart

But you would probably say

‘The ink is more of Art’

I would wear your dresses

You could borrow mine

Walking down the street

Ladies oh so fine

Thank you for your novels

Your poems and your letters

I know with your help

My writing will get better

In your arms

You think I sleep as you touch my face
but I only dream when i’m awake
So I lay here in your arms so safe
safe and warm in your embrace

You hold me tight, I hardly breathe
your legs entwined around my knees
Come closer my love, closer please
and hold me close, till I fall asleep

and when we wake at the call of dawn
I’m feeling safe, loved and warm
I know my love my dream came true
for all these years I dreamed of you
