Rookie (1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)

This to you I say

This to you I say
If you, allow I to say
Though I, you do not know
But you, I know but in brief
From the moments we shared in brief

Your striking beauty
In my heart resonates
Your calmness
Mine mind accepts
Yourself I like

Your rosy lips
With a honey smile drips
Your finely cut face
Shine with a rosy radiance
Mentioning not the finely formed figure

Your whole self
Like a diamond
Delicate yet strong
In space hang
That mine eyes have behold

This to you I say
Come together we stay
Friendship to form
A relationship to form
Our lives to share

This invitation you I beseech
Accept it forward us to march
For ahead lies much
For you and I to search
And share life as much

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
