Green The Grasses Seem

If you like the lace and lateness,
Then prepare your bed in lust

If you crave a winding wooded trail,
Then shade your eyes from dust

If you light the match, to brighten,
Then brave the growing flame

If you dare to ride the current
Then tell me... who's to blame....

If her lips reveal some flavor
Which newly tempts your taste

And the secrets of the season
Are secured, and safely placed

Return not, to this fortress
That hides and heals your scars

For no one gains free entrance,
If not guided by the stars.

    These lines have a graceful gliding pace that is easy to walk beside... delighting the senses like a stroll down a country lane... as surprising as a stolen kiss... delightful! (Report) Reply

    it seems that love has ventured for greener pastures only too dream of home. but, as fate would have it any trails leading back have already been overgrown. nicely written and full of imagery. (Report) Reply

    A wonderful poem! Straight talk.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
