Twilight glint

My love is not a butterfly or rose,
she’s neither soft as silk nor summer’s breeze,
no goddess ever wore such dreadful clothes
and if she sings I’ll plead “Oh stop it please”

My love is like the tree, her limbs are roots,
her voice is strong and in her eye is flint
her wisdom carries not the bloom but fruits
My love is twilight with a diamond’s glint

  1. What a great poem. These negation sound totally positive. I get the image of a beautiful, confident, and intelligent woman with a bit of spice.

  2. This reminds me of Sonnet 130, one of my favourite sonnets and also my favourite one to teach. I especially love the comparison in the second stanza – as you know, I adore trees! – and the lines:
    ‘her voice is strong and in her eye is flin’
    and
    ‘My love is twilight with a diamond’s glint’.

    That’s such a beautiful line to describe one’s love, Bjorn! One can see the sparkle in the person!
