    A Glimpse

    "Always dress proper and act lady like." That was so long ago. A button unbuttoned A glimpse of white breast saying notice me.

    A Gentle Breeze

    A subtle image Lingers in my mind Like a skirt lifted gently in the breeze.

    I love you, and that doesn’t describe my

    feelings very well, so I’ll try to elaborate, I want to paint constellations with your name, and plant trees that grow your favorite fruit, I want to dance with you, I want to twirl you around and catch you when you fall, I want to sleep with you, not sexually, but besides you...

    Love: The Joy That Wounds

    “You try to be faithful And sometimes you're cruel. You are mine. Then, you leave. Without you, I can't cope. And when you take the lead, I become your footstep. Your absence leaves a void. Without you, I can't cope. You have disturbed my sleep, You have wrecked my image. You...

    One Of My Favorite Robert Frost Poems

    The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth. Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the...

    for all Whom troubles and worries hold in thrall. He sings sweet songs of sun and dew And lightens that world for me and you- He opens our hearts- and pain has fled. And memories of childhood live instead. He soothes with the balm of love-bid tears The bitter pain of the...

    I was telling a friend here

    that I've written mostly sad poems because the happy sounding ones always sound too cheesy to me. Then I quickly sliced off this bit of cheese..The birdies in the trees, The doggies with no fleas, They all have too much cheese, So stop now, if you please.
