Sand in my eyes

You have showered me with roses petals
And have even picked away the nettles.
How in heavens name can I brew,
A bouquet as clever as you.

You made me sigh you made me cry
I even heard a laugh go bye.
I cannot top your elegance
Not even if I were a prince.

Some you said not true you know
But even if it were quite so
I think myself a simple man.
That is as much as I can.

I would not take away carefree
Nor would I thwart your flights of free.
And I will not tell you what you ought,
God forbid and perish the thought.

I see a twinkle in your eye.
I feel your mind in quick reply.
I do not question your beliefs,
Nor will I delve into your grief.

My one prescribe each day with jam,
You tell me just how grand I am.

Devil's devil both may be
Mired in devilish poetry
But just beware for your own sake
A snake well knows another snake

Why you are a she devil
Are you really on the level?

Sy,

You're misinterpreting my verse
Reading skills you should rehearse
You're reading 'tween the lines again
And putting words into my pen
My little quip was meant to be
Of you and Balladeer but not of me
A she devil? For goodness sake!
I'd never recognize a snake
Nor even devil in disguise
If I looked him in the eyes
But both of you were quick to say
You recognized each other right away
And so again this claim I make
A snake well knows another snake

Elizabeth,
Been eating turkey to much to fast,
I cannot think a line to cast.
I always read between the lines
That's where the gold is that I mine.

All this talk of snakes and devils
Leads my pen to thoughts disheveled
Between the lines is where there's light
Or didn't I even have this right ?

Dr moose1,
That's right, that's right
Between the lines shines the light
It's there the gold lay that we mine.
It's there the symbles interline.
