Today's Beautiful Gem: "Terms of Endearment" by Judy Grahn.
Many a time, when we are close to someone, we use nicknames as terms
of endearment. Many spouses have nicknames for each other, sometimes known
only to themselves. Of course, the most common one in this country is Honey!
It may also be Pumpkin or Chump or Redhead or Smiley! Here is a poem by
Judy Grahn where the lovers use a variety of such terms.
|"He called her:||golden dawn||She called him:||the wind whistles|
|He called her:||heart of the sky||She called him:||message bringer|
|He called her:||mother of pearl
|She called him:||fawn
keeper of forests
|He called her:||the tree is||She called him:||bird dancing|
|He called her:||who stands
will always stand
|She called him:||arriver|
|He called her:||the heart and the
womb are similar"
|She called him:||arrow in my heart|
