Shall we dance?

dance

Listening to the radio

Our favorite song plays

I look at him

and he says..

”shall we dance?”

Of course I oblige

I always do

”There is not much I adore more

than dancing with you”

Strolling through town

on a sunny day

The street players singing

and you say

”shall we dance?”

My lover and I

dance every day

Under the night moon

and the light of the day

Wrapped in his arms

My head on his chest

My dancing lover

Is surely the best

Missing you

miss you
The light fragrance of your hair
The smoothness of your skin
Being held in your arms
Covered by your limbs

These things I miss
When we break for a while
and not forgetting
Your sexy smile

Your whispers in my ear
and hands through my hair
Those tactile gestures
That show that you care

The way you say my name
or call me babe
and when you profess
Our love will never fade

Yet while we are apart
We know its not forever
In our hearts and minds
We are always together

Pretty yellow daffodil

Oh pretty yellow daffodil

You sit alone today

Amongst the bolder tulips

You brighten up my day

Image

The poor little droopy snowdrops

Remind us winters gone

We see the shooting crocuses

Pushing up so strong

Image

The pretty little cherry blossom

Stands guarding the spring flora

Perhaps the other daffodils

Will bloom with you tomorrow

Dear Miss Austen

Image

Whilst catching up on a little Jane Austen (my favorite author), I recalled a poem I wrote a while ago and published on an old blog….

Dear  Miss Austen…

I wish you were here today

I’m sure we would be friends

I would express my true admiration

Of that I’d not pretend

We could write a pretty letter

Of our devoted love

Or would you email me?

Perhaps that would be good

The words would be the same

Straight from the heart

But you would probably say

‘The ink is more of Art’

I would wear your dresses

You could borrow mine

Walking down the street

Ladies oh so fine

Thank you for your novels

Your poems and your letters

I know with your help

My writing will get better

(Gemini)

In your arms

Image

You think I sleep as you touch my face
but I only dream when i’m awake
So I lay here in your arms so safe
safe and warm in your embrace

You hold me tight, I hardly breathe
your legs entwined around my knees
Come closer my love, closer please
and hold me close, till I fall asleep

and when we wake at the call of dawn
I’m feeling safe, loved and warm
I know my love my dream came true
for all these years I dreamed of you

(Gemini)

 

In Flanders Fields ~ Lest We Forget


Image

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae
