Treasure Island

Is It Poetry

(1958 - / Bus-Boys And Poets, Washington D.C.)

Modesty


When in having or showing a seemingly moderate,
most humble estimate of one's great merits,
and importance, free from ones vanity,
egotism, boastfulness, or greatful pretensions.

When free from ostentation or any showy extravagance.
Can you a modest house,
white washed as new cotton picket fences.

When kind when in having,
or showing a proper regard for the decencies
behavior, speech, long fevered press,
and desert is best served:
when a modest neckline is not seen on that dress.

A demure young chorus girl.

Not being prudish could suggest an exaggerated,
self-conscious proper well fitting form of modesty
or propriety in behavior or lacking in conversation
when one whom like I, being thought of as you wishes
to be thought of as easily shocked and who more often than not is thinkingly tolerant.

Could a prudish objection to a harmless remark thus provoke.

When it is loving you, but never me.


Bold, but coarse.
Often is the bread, when seeing the greenest sea.

I am but a small,
humble, low, slow and meeker version of thee.

A candel light woman.
Bright camera woman,
and a dream for he, comes true.

Can you not find,
this being this your modest of modest styles today.

Can we not be ostentatious or kind of pretentious
without it being unseemingly, not extremly or excessively?

When it is modest and moderate,
decorous and or decent, when coming, I ask this of thee.

Love me and thou be art,
it is most often then, only when found by thee, is modestly.

Keeping due measure of your new found treasure.

It is a concentration of all of your riches,
and often one which is considered lost or forgotten
until being, you it is fire, 'rediscovered.


Of fine ripe women and wine, 'not improper or lewd,
Never once considered, a shrew.

'I will, ' therefore, with only thee...

Being that women adorned in themselves is modesty...

When beechen quickened red buds begin then to swell,
And the woods, far off this woman can see.

Being thus when this is, I have written
on this page.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
