A Bumpkin's Chronicle - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

He likes her burgundy lips
And he begs for a kiss.
The poor chap really misses
And he regrets of the wild goose chase.
A countrywoman close upon her menopause
Still waits for him with a crack up
And this wild flower beats about the bush.
The naive Goody-goody who walks from the city end helplessly?
And in the semi-darkness of the twilight sky the glimmer of the Starvation star twinkles lazily.
No barriers & restrictions it seems,
The country road always opens for the desperate wayfarers.

To my dearest Denis.Joe..............'Though we never met in this sojourn
Yet I see you in my fading dreams on and off, how strange this life my dear Joe? '

    The naive Goody-goody who walks from the city end helplessly?
    ................................funny though it speaks of other serious affairs of life in a poetic way.

    A moving account of mature love and lust in a poverty stricken and word weary world. Your dedication to Denis Joe is poignant and reciprocated by my good self, I can assure you. The site is certainly the poorer for his absence. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply

    Another poem written in your own unique style. True poets are always willing to give themselves away in words. Your dedication to Denis Joe is also very touching.
    Old friends are irreplaceable.Take care.
