LOVING THE DETAILS

LOVING THE DETAILS

How she and he became one flesh,

Takes longer to get off the chest…

It’s not bad

But the best we’ve had,

Together we answer the quest!

Poets mourn and dream all day,

Romance time for one person plays…

Thinking of a sultry

Woman is adultery,

For me. so Scripture says.

So others will do this job,

Whilst I with them hobnob…

Maybe I’ll learn

A safe way to yearn,

Collecting girls isn’t my job!

When unattached I grieved,

Went after any woman that breathed…

Physique mattered less

For the desperate I guess,

Whose desires frequently deceived.

A girl would change her hairdo

From morning to night (she’s who?)…

Crushes many

But captures hardly any,

The fat boy got awfully blue!

Only two went for a whole year,

The first of these wrote a “Jon Dear”…

The second lasted

a lifetime contrasted

With all the rest of its peers!

OUT OF THE FALLING SNOW

(http://restlessmoods.blogspot.com/ )

OUT OF THE FALLING SNOW…

Appearing from the snow drifting down,

Angelic face rosy and round…

A figure so fair

Appearing in air,

A fairy queen’s mystic ground.

The woman, one I could name,

Was special to me, she came…

Out of the snow

Wanting to know,

Were the roads doing better or the same?

I replied, “better all the time”,

With joy not so sublime…

My fairy queen

Couldn’t have seen

The lump in my throat at her lines.

Amidst the falling snow we passed,

I controlled my feelings at last…

Bidding her fond adieu

As we slogged out of view,

Being mindful of our lots cast.
