It's Valentine's week, so how about a love poem?
I wrote a version of this poem ten years ago, so it's an anniversary poem too, revived and revised as the days grow ever more golden.
I run a Patreon page for my poetry. My most loyal readers–my patrons– always get to read my poems first, alongside other bonus gifts and giveaways.
Patreon is a membership platform that brings creators together with those who like to support them. Knowing I have patrons who care about poetry keeps me connected when duties, doubts or distractions threaten to divert me off in other directions.
I really appreciate my patrons (named here) for helping me to keep things poetical around here.
Once a poem has been patron-only for 90 days, I can publish it here on my blog and in other places. This week's poem was published there three month's ago and if you'd like an audio version of this poem, you can hear it there now, three months on.

If you've been motivated, moved or inspired by my writing, or any of my work, please consider becoming a patron. On my Patreon Page, I offer exclusive poetry to my most loyal readers: my patrons. And there I also offer an Online Open mic and Advice Clinic, “The Prosperous Poet”. This monthly event helps to showcase the work of other poets, and advises “poetpreneurs” on how to publish for profit, as well as passion and pleasure, and thereby make a living from their work.
