Spanish Eyes


A pair of black spanish eyes,
Always look my way.
With a tenderness they can't disguise,
I see them everyday.

I've seen myself in those spanish eyes,
At times in the pale moonlight.
When from my heart they bring forth sighs,
On a warm and sultry night.

I live each day, to see those eyes,
And try to make them mine.
When I'm with them time fairly flies,
And my heart is left to pine.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
