My Love Is The Sea - Donald Falconer (Poetry)

Updated: Sep 20, 2018

Donald Falconer is a rare poet. His work really resonates with people. This beautiful love poem is inspired by the nature of Scotland. It encapsulates that incredible feeling of falling in love with someone.



My love is the sea, my sweet. Come closer to me, lily feet, and run to the shore where you belong, my love. Through forests we dance, giggle honey. Bright flowers to trance, how funny, place one in your hair if you dare. By the cascade we stand, falling tightly. Your fingers in my hand, I press lightly, against my lips your fingertips. Stream to the sea, gentle darling. Fly closer to me, little starling and sing to my heart to be free. My love is the sea, my sweet. Come closer to me, lily feet, and run to the shore where you belong,  my love.
