A Constancy of Emotion

Conni
Reclining Odalisque by Ferdinand Max Bredt

The casual acquaintance became a casual friend, and then a friend with benefits ... and her intimacy became a lasting impression ... a memory in the heart.

Dear Conni, how are you today?

I’m thinking about you

This moment without you

And wishing you well by the way.

~

Fair Conni, where are you tonight?

And do you remember

The glow of the ember

That waned in our time of delight?

~

Darling Conni, sultry and warm,

Since ever I met you,

I could not forget you,

So enrapt was I in your charm.

~

Oh, pretty Conni, are you still

Alone in the starkness

Of quiet and darkness,

That only the right words can fill?

~

Sweet Conni, the lingering smile

That played on my heartstrings

And lifted my heart’s wings,

And lighted the intimate while.

~

Oh, Conni dearest, do you hear

The world stood still for us.

It did and will for us,

Should we e’er return to that tier.
