Maria Modi-Tuya: 2018 ND Poetry Out Loud State Champion “April Love”


– We have walked in
loves land a little way. We have learned his
lessons a little while. And shall we not part at
the end of day with a sigh. A smile. My poem is April Love
by Ernest Dowson. April Love is just a sweet
flirty poem that I like. It’s about these two people who go on a date and
they fall in love. And it’s not really real love, but they were in the
moment of each other, and they experienced things, and they were just going
through this love land. It was great for the moment. When it’s over they
just go their way, ’cause it was just
for that month. – [Woman] April Love
by Ernest Dowson. – We have walked in
loves land a little way. We have learned his
lessons a little while. And shall we not part at
the end of day, with a sigh, A smile? A little while in
the shine of a sun. We were twined together. Joined lips. Forgot how the shadows
fall when the day is done, and when love is not. We have made no vows. There will none be broke. Our love was as free as
the wind on the hill. There was no word said
we need wish unspoke, we wrought no ill, so shall we not part
at the end of day? Who have loved and
lingered a little while. Joined lips for the last time. Go our way with a sigh, a smile. (fun music) – [Woman] Funded
