Easy to Love

by Larry Chamberlin   Aug 6, 2018



She told me
“I will wear flowers
in my hair for you
in the mornings.”

I stayed with her
all night, every night
and when I died
she wore flowers
in her hair
in mourning.

    Judging comment:

    I do not deny that the flowers in the lady's hair must have been very beautiful, but these words here are as beautiful as those moments too; they are flowers to me, and it has been very 'easy to love' this poem. The free flow, short structure and simple words add to the beauty of it and enhance the imagination much more. I read it three times, it was very romantic . :)

    This poem speaks volumes of true, unconditional love-

    Its elegant, with the double meaning of morning
    and mourning which I love and admire within poetry.
    The first stanza made me melt and the second stanza
    made me cry- Powerful emotion in just two stanzas... Beautiful!

    I feel so happy when poems are judged on their content regardless of the format, style, size etc.
    Loved it when you wrote it. Brought smile on my face when it won.

    Never has a homophone been put to better use. A thoroughly deserved win, Larry.
