LOVE'S COMING (John Shaw Neilson)

( New World Publication thank Cynthia Abegail for introducing John Shaw Neilson who has contributed a beautiful and meaningful poem for our Publication. Our readers will love such a wonderful poem. Thanks again) New World


Quietly as rosebuds
Talk to a thin air,
Love came so lightly
I knew not that he was there.

Quietly as lovers
Creep at the middle moon,
Softly as players tremble
In the tears of a tune;

Quietly as lilies
Their faint vows declare
Came the shy pilgrim:
I knew not he was there...

Without hail or tempest,
Blue sword or flame,
Love came so lightly
I knew not that he came.

John Shaw Neilson
