    Wait

    Many things I rather do than wait to see the same Many words I would like to cast including my true name Though the time it does not suit me My opinion is unjust So I stand to wait not for the judgement I would cast But the lesson I must learn

    A Highland Romance

    When the morning sun kisses the face of the mountain,she blushes a yellow,green and red. The stars runaway,and the man in the moon,respectfully turns his head.

    Love You

    In the Autumn, nighttime air To hold you close and feel you there To lay a kiss upon your cheek To hear of all the things you'd speak To walk along hand in hand As the waves crash on the sand As the moonlight lights the way Our hearts wide open in love's display The Snowdog
