MacGregor Tagliaferro Poems
Those eyes that set my thoughts and dreams on fire, Those winsome lips that hold my heart in chains, Those lovely legs which conquered my desire, That wit which of my thoughts does hold the reins
Fast or Feast
Dreamed we were in The Court of Two Sisters The slow green fans turnin' in the courtyard The green napkins, the waiters all in green In early afternoon, we ordered a big breakfast
The Day We Met
The day we met Stands apart From all the other days In my memories
The Lack Thereof
Amid the mystic fields of dreams I wandered, and came on a grave. Breathlessly still was all around Yet breathin' with an easy heart;
Sun shinin' down Stars fill the sky Give me shelter Though without you
Remains Of The Day
Now; old and grey and tired, done with the day, By the fire with this book and a whisky, Slowly readin', and dreamin' of that look Your eyes had in the lengthening shadows;
Outside Cold Wind blows
Dreams and Desires
So much has been said So little has been said So much remains to be said Or does it
Love First, Live Incidentally

Do I Like...
As is the case with her, She swept into the room And the light and everything That mattered was drawn to her
Is It Enough

Those eyes that set my thoughts and dreams on fire,
Those winsome lips that hold my heart in chains,
Those lovely legs which conquered my desire,
That wit which of my thoughts does hold the reins
Those eyes that pierce my heart without remorse
Those eyes that conquer my will without force!
Those eyes for clearness do the stars surpass,
Those lips make all of my thoughts come undone,
Those legs more beautiful than any lass,
That wit even to the skies has glory won.
Those eyes that pierce my heart without remorse!
Those eyes that conquer my ...
