Treasure Island

John G. Nelson

(August 24,1976 / Monrovia, Liberia)

she looks just like you


she looks just like you, thine tender eyes
she walks honor, with truth not praises
Her cheerful smiles. lips & flowery looks
Charming Speeches, styles, as love books.
A mother & daughter laugh quite fondly,
Together, more often jolly, so beautifully

she lies in silent place where she dreams
splendid phiz, make inner room to beam
she lies Under warm sheets, how she sleeps
Dreams of cheer & beautiful flower peeps
Whilst the night falls asleep & await morn
Pleasure, to make the dawn ready to adorn

Like a discreet wife prove faithful & charm
The fruitage of her hands refresh & warm
Caring hands ‘re thrust out to distaff shows,
Whence did love, caress & wisdom, but glow
her cheek s ‘re comely, God’s glory manifest
her beautiful feat, marvel all so, from the rest
