Red tongues tied


Red tongues tied
Words of truth died
When you lied
Think of me
Like a swarm of bees
Sting 
Bring out your venom
Lend shout 
Aloud is your color red tongues tied
Fed proud this roller glide
Downtown bottom hide
South side shone shadow
On manhattan island alone.
Rome on south sunny side
We dance in dreams but hide.

Red, fed, tongues and lungs
Songs tied 
La la sing words lied
Said my face red sum dallied

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
