The Enchanting Courtyard

I am a content writer who enjoys expressing my thoughts through poetry, travel and well-being tips.


A picture so elegant and fine

A view majestic and sublime

Excited by what the night will bring

As they meet their hearts dance and sing

Soon to be dusk on this August night

Their souls surrounded with light

The courtyard romances them too

Within its beauty, the magic that grew

Over days spent in the sun and heat

Dancing to the sound of their own beat

Swept with passion, their hearts stir with glee

Delighted in a summer romance, happy and free.

Nicely written and lovely of you to share with the rest of us. The title reminds me of my wanderings in Venice, Italy where every street reveals some new wonder that you just can't help but stop and appreciate.

Hi Nella. You have composed a nice crisp poem on the elegance of the courtyard.

These heritage structures never fail to amaze. In fact, most of the mansions and palaces have had a courtyard in their architectural setup. It such a masterpiece and evokes feelings of nostalgia of the days gone by.

This is a beautifuk poem, Nella.
