' Emeralds And Black Diamonds... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

Lie down lass, with me, in sage green meadows
Your blouse flouncing open, in the teasing breeze
The meadows, feel so cotton, this time of year
Come lay beside me, and sense my desires.

Open field, honeysuckle....arouses my yen
For passion 'neath th' sparkle by th' mid-noon sun
No clouds abide our scape of choice to pleasure
So, again I ask you lass, come lay beside me.

Come close, love, as these hungry emerald eyes
Beg to stare into your warm, black diamond eyes
Take my hand in bond, I assure you, my lov',
That emeralds and diamonds never fade away.

  • Seamus O Brian (7/11/2017 12:21:00 PM)

    There is a controlled passion here, beautifully contrasted with the softness of the landscape. The pulse of the lover's hunger beats with the force of repression, the constraint of Victorian chivalry where gentle invitations are given, and the strength of passion held in check until all restraints are gently tossed aside. A moving and powerful piece. Bravo! (Report) Reply

    I was WRONG, my comments I have found now and you are really the only poet with so many aquaintances, friends, colleagues who have come here to drop some precious comment. My fav. colors are RED and GREEN. June 2015 Xlibris in the UK published my Poetry Book titled EMERALDS GREEN. Also available as an E-BOOK. Friends say that they have bought from AMAZON. So at present one can buy on almost all sites.Sincerely, Sylvia FC (Report) Reply
