EXQUISITE GIFT

He wakens me in darkened room
In halo's corner sings a tune
A splendid loving melody
Of twinkling crests on rippled sea

And patiently he waits his turn
No hurried step, no timely yearn
No lighted candle does he burn
So patiently he waits his turn

Then gracefully he comes to me
No vision of his face I see
And know not I who he may be
Though try I may, I cannot see

But knowing that he bears a gift
My vacant spirit to uplift
His presence welcomed openly
I wait my turn as patiently

Then in the halo lighted room
He comes to me and fills my womb
Exquisite spirit, meek and mild
Exquisite gift - my future child

Elizabeth,
Your poetry has overflowed
The hollow of my beggers bowl.
And I'm so filled with pleasantry
You have me down upon one knee.
Excellent poem.

Elizabeth ... this is as exquisite as the birth of that child.
Simply loving ... simply Mom.

Elisabeth, I dare to say...
But wait! I find to my dismay..
A loss for words, to laud, describe
This sweet maternal diatribe-
And yet my thoughts are running rife,
About that One who giveth life,
And be it daughter, mayhap son-
On poem, and offspring...Girl, well done!

------------------
Live large, people!

Sy,

Your beggar's bowl is full of tears
From windswept sands and unknown fears
A poet kneels beside the sea
Must brush the sands from off his knee
Is I who am on bended knee
And marvel at your epopee
With little poems I do rehearse
While learning words and rhyming verse
Elizabeth

Marge,
A mother with a crimson rose
The truth that's in this poem knows
Thank you,
Elizabeth

Baladeer and Ruth,
You make my heart skip a beat,
Thank you

Gunslinger,
Of all the poets, you are one
Who knows the truth of songs I've sung
And knows that life did true appear
Before the mother shed a tear
Before the wisest man of all
Could sure detect the cradles wall
And say for sure through testing done
That life itself had now begun
For each and every poem I write
Has been engraved by truth and light
The poems' stories you behold
Happened just as they were told
Imagination I have none
As it was told, the deed was done
