I Love the Woman Whom I Love

a love poem to Ethel by Thomas Davis

I love the woman whom I love,
And in the morning’s world of blue
I wake to bellow hearty songs
That say so simply, “I love you.”

Love is the light of human black.
The tone that brings man up to gray,
And though the world is lost and doomed,
I say it makes today a day.

So, blacken out the joyous sun
And ink away the solemn moon.
I love woman whom I love.
She’ll lighten up a tar-black room.

  5. Lovely – I can hear this put to music (like a Leonard
    Cohen song). Your love poetry is always so tender and beautiful!
