    This is a poem in old English, very eloquent and very passionate.

    Strike, sway, strike, strike, sway
    My soul runs amok.
    Bless me with thy music forevermore.

    I liked this stanza best, it reveals so much about the feelings the writer has for the significant other:)

    Well done!

    5/5 Ingrid

    Excellently done. I was always going to like this as I love poems/novels written in old English. I have spent many years of my life obsessed with Shakespeare!
    It really isn't easy to do, and most English don't come close, so well done for being brave enough to give it a go, but also for doing it so well.

    All the best,

    I like the language of old English and you have penned it well
    without a single hic cup! It flowed and from the read I gather lots
    of feelings lie within it...well done!

    Mel, this is very beautiful :) I love that you've written this in old English, as that's what I'm used to reading religious texts in. For some reason old English seems to suit this topic best.

    "Bold of me to try to
    solidify Thee in phrases
    that come beating out of my heart's recess."

    My favourite verse. Very beautifully written, honest and to the point. I've run out of nominations, but I clicked that 'Like' button about 8 times. Stingy bugga only gave you 1 Like though.

    Thanks for sharing this piece with us all :)

      Wow, Maher, this is such a heart-warming comment. Thank you for appreciating the piece. I love Old English, and I found it perfect to express the feelings I have. Old English has somehow a different tug at heartstrings. :-) One like is more than enough!

    Fair damsel, without tardy completion 'tis within you, methinks, to allow the expression of hearts full. My brave soul pondering.
