Strange Fits Of Passion Have I Known

Strange fits of passion have I known:
And I will dare to tell,
But in the lover's ear alone,
What once to me befell.

When she I loved looked every day
Fresh as a rose in June,
I to her cottage bent my way,
Beneath an evening-moon.

Bards Of Passion And Of Mirth,

BARDS of Passion and of Mirth,
Ye have left your souls on earth!
Have ye souls in heaven too,
Doubled-lived in regions new?
Yes, and those of heaven commune
With the spheres of sun and moon;
With the noise of fountains wondrous,
And the parle of voices thund'rous;
With the whisper of heaven's trees
And one another, in soft ease

*** Passion ***

Grand old Canyon Mars on Earth
Precursor to the rebirth
Of more scenic terrains of passion
We explore the umbilical union
Two souls embedded with escapism
Could we breathe the confined air?
Necessities surge but a test
You and I progressed
Love is paramount
As alive as Death Valley

Reason And Passion Xv

And the priestess spoke again and said: "Speak to us of Reason and Passion."

And he answered saying:

Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against passion and your appetite.

Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody.

But how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements?


SOME have won a wild delight,
By daring wilder sorrow;
Could I gain thy love to-night,
I'd hazard death to-morrow.

Could the battle-struggle earn
One kind glance from thine eye,
How this withering heart would burn,
The heady fight to try !

A Soliloquy Of The Full Moon, She Being In A Mad Passion

Now as Heaven is my Lot, they're the Pests of the Nation!
Wherever they can come
With clankum and blankum
'Tis all Botheration, & Hell & Damnation,
With fun, jeering
And still to the tune of Transmogrification--
Those muttering

The Things I Love With A Passion

I rock and roll with passion
I talk out my soul with a passion

I eat good food with passion
I defeat bad mood with a passion

I sleep well with passion
I weep hell with a passion

I dream endlessly with passion

Passion's Pride

Alone.........I sit
By the fishing hole
Didn't bring..don't need
...No fishing pole

Just want to catch
A breath of air
..And reconcile

Remember Him, Whom Passion's Power

Remember him, whom Passion's power
Severely---deeply---vainly proved:
Remember thou that dangerous hour,
When neither fell, though both were loved.

That yielding breast, that melting eye,
Too much invited to be blessed:
That gentle prayer, that pleading sigh,
The wilder wish reproved, repressed.

A Fleeting Passion

Thou shalt not laugh, thou shalt not romp,
Let's grimly kiss with bated breath;
As quietly and solemnly
As Life when it is kissing Death.
Now in the silence of the grave,
My hand is squeezing that soft breast;
While thou dost in such passion lie,
It mocks me with its look of rest.

But when the morning comes at last,

Where The Passion Flower Grows

Lay down on your pillow
and turn the lights down low
let me take you to the garden
where the passion flower grows

Close your eyes and enter dreams
as love's emotion sets the scene
and flitters through the garden
where the passion flower grows

A Moment Of Passion

A moment of passion so easily shared,
with no fear or regret.
The memories flood through my mind,
a moment of passion I'll never forget.

A moment of passion is like a drug,
it takes me so high.
Needing to get another fix,
a moment of passion can never lie

(a) 49 (Love/Passion) This Is Crazy

A shadow with me all day
No body
This is crazy, this is crazy

Notes of a scintillating flute
No flutist
This is crazy, this is crazy

Breathtaking verse on paper
I was sleeping

(a) 18 (Love/Passion) Untie The Knot

Untie the knot for me
of your deep inner secrets....
Give me the key
of your inner fantasies
where u have been drowning....
Let me swim in the sea
of your dreams, desires and longings....
Let me unravel the mysteries
of your mind
thats made you blind

The Passion


Erewhile of music, and ethereal mirth,
Wherewith the stage of Air and Earth did ring,
And joyous news of heavenly Infant’s birth,
My muse with Angels did divide to sing;
But headlong joy is ever on the wing,
In wintry solstice like the shortened light
Soon swallowed up in dark and long outliving night.

(a) 47 (Love/Passion) Beware, My Love...

Beware, my Love
Of the thunder
That we will encounter
When we touch

Beware, my love
Of the Rain
The outpourings of the pain
For the lost time

(a) 37 (Love/Passion) I Wish

I wish I was the morning wind
Gently brushing against your skin

I wish I was a ray of sunlight
Giving you warmth that would stay through the night

I wish I was a dropp of wine
That mingled in your blood making it my shrine

I wish I was the fragrance

(a) 21 (Love/Passion) I Will Be The Music That You Wore

You sing
I will be the mountain and hold your voice deep inside

You feel
I will be the earth and keep your vibrations in my core

You cry
I will be the ocean keeping your sacred drops alive

You chant

(a) 30 (Love/Passion) I Dont Want To Close My Eyes

Today I dont want to close my eyes
My heart tells me that your image is going to fly
From the horizon of my heart to its beyond
I want to capture the image forever in the pond
A sacred reflection into which I can dip
When the sun is too strong and sip
its drops when i want to quench my thirst
When my throat is parched and I want to burst
Into a song.....

(a) 9 (Love/Passion) Come, Show Me The Way

Lost in the vortex of my thoughts
Seeking a vision that got lost
Fire consumed or a lost monsoon
Parched earth awaiting a boon
A solitary traveller in an undulating desert
that got lost....

Come show me the way
In your light, everything is clear
And its a sunny day
