With This Ring

With this ring, I set you free
Free to love and free to be
Free to grow and free to dream
Free to spend your life with me

This ring is round and knows no end
It joins a lover and a friend
It joins the past and what’s to come
It joins two hearts that beat as one

With this ring, we take our vow
To make the most of here and now
To figure out the what and how
To share the stage and take our bow

This ring is forged with human hands
With gold and jewel from distant lands
So too, we shape our precious love
And chase the blue skies up above

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
