Breathless Chivalry

by Morgan

Breathless Chivalry


May I Touch said He

In all his Breathless Chivalry

As Time Unraveled behind the Sea

Of Breakers rolling

And the Heavens Extolling

The Embrace with which He

Surrounded Me

Let us Sigh Said I

Before the Wanton hours Fly

And Golden Fire Caresses the Sky

Sweet Kiss of Repose

As His eyes slowly close

Tenderly to Exemplify

The Passion of His Sweet Reply


A Poem Prompted by Kim at Peace, Love, and Patchouli to write a poem that begins with a line from a another poem (not necessarily the first one), but then goes elsewhere with it.   I’d like to Thank Kim for this wonderful prompt, without which, who knows if this poem would ever have found Expression!

I Selected “May I Feel Said He” by e e Cummings (found here:
