This Lady In Green


Her hair catches
in the sun
reflections of
golden threads
long and lovely

Eyes so green
more precious
than jade
one could take
a swim
get lost in them

Skin smooth as
silk
soft to the touch
Sweet fragrance of
flowers
flowing velvet gown

Matches her eyes
images linger on
a summer night
an Irish lady oh
what a sight.

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
