That Gaze, Once Turned - Poem by james watkin

That gaze, once turned
Smiles upon me forever.
Those eyes, once burned
As the stars never go out.
This earth, one keeps
Sunblest for day, though set
Yet in song; in perfume yet.
This earth, moreover
Clear for night, against Time's will
Still pain-assuaged; tranquil still.

    I adored this brevity piece not only because the last verse mentioned one of my favorite words *grins* but because artistry was inked in every line. (Report)Reply
