Special Feature Collaborative Poem--By Leokadia Durmaj--Australia and Robert Hewett Sr.--United States

Cavalier of My Heart

By Leokadia Durmaj and Robert Hewett Sr.

~ I dub you Knight of Love, the finest in the land;
I offer you my heart with sword within my hand.

There is no measure to the love that you have shown,
you are my shining Knight, you won this heart I own.

My love is with you as you travel to and fro,
this heart beats within you, wherever you may go.

I need not worry dear when you're not by my side;
my heart tells me clearly, you wear my love with pride.

I honour you my Knight, my faith within your soul,
my heart forever yours, my destiny you hold. ~

I am your stalwart Knight of love, fortune and fame,
With a burning love that will forever remain.

You are in my heart, mind and soul, my Lady Fair,
Your colour Blue on my sleeve shows I truly care.

Although I must ride far, fight and joust for my King,
Wanting you in my arms sets my heart to aching.

I vanquish my foes; win fierce battles for the Crown,
Turn my steed your way and listen to his hooves pound.

The sound matches the pounding of my anxious heart,
As I envision your lovely face, lips apart.

    1. (Smiling) Thank you Sheri for your wonderful comment. Robert and I greatly appreciated you taking the time to read our work. It will be a long time before we will be able to write together again. Robert has had eye surgery and will be unable to read or write for up to 6 months. He has only 40% vision in the other eye. We decided to write something special, so happy you enjoyed this poetic piece, Blessings sent with love, Leokadia.

    1. Both Robert and I thank you for your wonderful comment David, yes we are both romantics at heart (smile) This poem came about after I sent Robert my half of this poem and he told me he was hoping we could write something from a time long ago. it was as if I read his mind he told me. I was so happy we could both write about something we both love. Blessings always, Lee.

  7. Thank you, Isha Wagner, for the following--

    What? A jousting knight of old and a maiden fair. This surely is romance based upon imagination of those olden times, glistening with sweet overtures of everlasting love. What else is there to say? It's all said and beautifully expressed.

    Yours sincerely
    Isha Wagner
