Mine


Mine
Gin-Nie Tanner Smith
August 15th,2006

Through the glass gazing, I saw the love of a woman and man,
A brave of dark eyes with his beloved, as behind her did stand;
Strong arms embracing round her shoulders fairest,
As she tenderly molded her body to his loving caress;
Through the glass gazing, his voice did find my heart,
Mine, she is mine, his soul did impart.

Through the glass gazing, I saw the love of a woman and man,
Reflection now revealing a fair eyed man, as behind her did stand;
Strong arms embracing round his beloved shoulders fairest,
As she tenderly molded her body to his loving caress;
Through the glass refection his voice touched my heart,
Mine, she is mine, his soul did impart.

Through the glass he is gazing, to the love of a woman and man,
Years have passed since behind his lost love, he did stand;
Longing arms now empty from her tender caress,
Only the painting remains as a memory to attest;
Through the glass gazing at a woman and man,
No reflection, without his love, alone he does stand.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
