Lay Me Down - Poem by Linda Harnett

Lay me down,
On eider and on lace,
That I may see the love,
Upon your face,
Lay me in the shadow,
Of your smile,
That I may share my life,
With you a while,

Lay me down,
On silken summer sand,
That I may come to know,
And understand,
Lay me at the place,
Where rainbows end,
That I may be with you,
My love, my friend.

    'Lay me in the shadow, Of your smile', 'On silken summer sand'. As poetry, this is as hackneyed as President Bush's impression of a simpleton. That aside, I hope this poem did/ does the trick. (Report)Reply
