' 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.

    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

    Most tender and beautiful metaphors about your beloved lass, Frank. Fascinating poem. It is saddest with POEM HUNTER HERE, almost no poets are visiting here. FB has won from all ONLINE Sites. So many poems you have created here. Amazingly rendered! ! I am proud of you that I have found you NOW and that I knew you from the late POETFREAK.COM run by owner Johannes F. and the builder Johannes M. I repeat that I am PROUD of you that I know you and have found you here on PH. Sincerest from Sylvia FC (AD 18 April 2017) . (Report) Reply

    Wow Frank, this is one of the most beautiful treasures you shared here, so deeply touched that I am almost angry with my hand for not having the talent of painting. I would so love to paint those black diamonds and emerald eyes. The images you shared here are so inspired that will linger with my soul for a long time. Thank you! (Report) Reply
