Treasure Island

Only Words Can Say


saw you from across the way
and only words can say,
than stare
at you so near,
your eyes, crystal clear
in yours, i ought to stay.

would you stay?
can you really do?
would you marry me?
would you carry me?
questions within me
all gone unknown to be.

i pause
to scout
for a spouse
not in doubt
to the falls
all gone without.

forgive me for looking
at your beauty,
your talk is soothing
like the morning,
i run smoothly
to the calling.

let me say these few lines
to take you many miles,
where only words can stay
when only words can say,
i pause to reckon with the silence,
you walked across my silence.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
