Wild Wishes by Ethel M. Hewitt

{Poem of the Day}

Today’s poem of the day is about losing a loved one. And while I haven’t recently lost anyone, it’s a lovely poem. Fantastic title.

However, I cannot find any information about the author. So if anyone has any idea, please let me know. I’d like to know more about her.

“Wild Wishes”
Ethel M. Hewitt
I wish, because the sweetness of your passing
Makes all the earth a garden where you tread,
That I might be the meanest of your roses,
To pave your path with petals passion-red!
I wish, because the softness of your breathing
Stirs the white jasmine at your window frame,
That I might be the fragrance of a flower,
To stir the night breeze with your dearest name!
I wish, because the glory of your dreaming
Strews all the field of heaven with throbbing stars,
That I might storm the portals of your slumber,
And soar with you beyond night’s golden bars!
I wish to be the day you die, Beloved,
Though at its close my foolish heart must break!
But most of all, I wish, my dearest darling,
To be the Blessed Morning when you wake!
