Beautiful Phrases

Beautiful phrases

Emerald green, misty dells
Soft alabaster faces
Cold, briney ocean swells
Finely woven, antique laces

Sun-kissed cheeks
Rose petal lips
Long summer weeks
Braised roast beef tips

Cerulean skies
Elfin ears
Ebony eyes
Quicksilver tears

Raven haired lasses
Eagle-eyed lad
Fog shrouded passes
Wind moaning sad

Candle’s faint flicker
Pink tinged sky
Wild pony’s whicker
Soft, sibilant sigh

Trees tremulously swaying
Wind shivered reeds
Hair, silver graying
Man’s unfilled needs

These phrases have no scheme
And no reason that they should
Have only one redeeming theme
Be beautiful and…
Sound good.
David Whalen
