' 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 lass, and sense the softness

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

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

    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

    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

    a beautiful poem, Frank - with such delightful echoes of 16-17th century poetic conceits, the pastoral tradition and even a touch of the Irish...a delightful offering (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
