Mary Wismer


As a year begin


The blossoms of the New Year's crown
Bloom from the ashes of the dead.'
The Old Year's heart was full of greed;
with selfishness it longed and ached,
and cried: 'I have not half I need.
My thirst is bitter and unlaced.
But to the New Year's generous hand
all gifts in plenty shall return;
True love it shall understand;
by all your failures it shall learn.

I will bring Sweet smiles,
That told no pain just faith.
As you gazed unto my eye,
And I fell in your sweet embrace
Softly whisper your passion
Come to me my loving heart.
I felt so safe in your arms.

As past years hurried by,
Still we'd gaze eye to eye
Whispering tenderly.
How golden the memory
Sheer magic it weaves,
And as a New Year begins
As eternal love Wrapped
in our flowing desires.

Revelry A floral sheer magic it weaves,
The joyous bells echoed
From the depth of my souls embrace.
Let me be brave when the burden is great,
Faithful when wounded by sorrow;
Teach me, when troubled, with patience to wait
the better and brighter to-morrow.

    I thought that this piece is done by a pure foreign bred, but as opened it and saw a beautiful Filipina lady, I was mesmerized.

    I like this first stanza a lot especially these lines:

    The blossoms of the New Year's crown
    Bloom from the ashes of the dead.'

    My thirst is bitter and unlaced.
    But to the New Year's generous hand

    These are quite original. Schön geschrieben. (Report) Reply
