About the Poem

A lovely and tender experience my sweetheart and I had last summer - a second honeymoon twenty-three years after the first - and infinitely sweeter!

A Few Visitor Comments

Bruce J. - Canada
Beautiful. As an avid camper and a formerly married man, I can just picture the beauty and serenity that Rosemary describes. It simply took my breath away.

Second Honeymoon

In the rich forest's
Moonlit midnight,
His hands
With loving, lingering
Feather touch tenderly traced
Tingling paths on succulent beaches . . .
Skin warm against velvet skin
My lips soft against him
In the crackling gentle glow
Of campfire-light by the river;
Our love as pure as a drop
Of mountain water on a leaf.

I'll always remember
Golden September . . .
