Painting: Vincent van Gogh – Orchard in Blossom (Plum Trees)

*EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD: Bringing some of my favorite previously published poems back to the front page

Submitted by Linda Lee Lyberg

When you see white clover sprawling in the meadow
do you still think of me even though our love
once treasured, is now with regret over?

As for me I can tell you, the plum is blooming now
I remember the promises we made
underneath its burgeoning boughs
And I will wonder ever after
if you remember too.

The yellow roses came today and I read the message within
Can we please forgive and forget all we said back then
I beg you my love can we renew our cherished love again?

And so today, I measured and took stock of all we shared
with my heart still longing, and my lonesome soul laid bare
I sent to you the dried red rose you first gave to me
with this simple note, let’s meet tonight
when the moon is bright under the plum tree.
