For As You Where

For as you where, beauty like white snow,
dwelling in the mountains above the sea
As the cold winds of August blow,
blowing the leaves that dwell and raise not away from the tree

For as you where, to me your beauty such seems yet perceived
Since first my eyes laid eyes upon you,
doth yet mine eyes deceived
As you treaded with composure, driven by fate,
Of summer breeze that tossed you to mine direction
The way you stared your eyes against mine, I figured my soul mate,
So your eyes was the first impression
The sun stopped motion to gaze upon you, I found a clue
Under the cleared skies of straand beach,
that reflected the sea and the mountains blue

For as you where, since that day my proposal to you was denied
Friendship was your only compassion,
granted but declined
Only to fulfill promises, to capture your attention,
To make you realize attraction,
And make you my dearest girl
Precisely what I do portray in this poem, better show recognition

For as you where, the very first night we spent
That you swore from the grave that it shall not occur,
Yet your words I suppose you repent

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
