Janine


JANINE


Joy's Janine, sovereign Queen,
is sitting unwittingly, caught between
time and timelessness, sans spleen.

Softness shines from silent scene
such as, had I true artist been,
from canvas onto online screen,
all might glimpse peerlessness serene.

She'd e'en cause pristine saints to dream
on paragon, fair figurine,
on team-theme evergreen.

E’en
Janine
sov’reign Queen,
in beige, brown, green
in silence is seen
sitting. Such a soft scene
as, had I an artist been,
from palette to fair picturene
I would, I ween, cause e’en the saints to dream.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
