Something in the eyes there was
That captivated – held me –
It seemed so rare that such a thing
So forcefully compelled me …

Alight with mirth, cornflower pools,
With distant passions burning,
That cast their webs about my heart
And set the soul to yearning;

Perhaps it was the ready smile,
Or perfect face that framed them,
Mistrustful heart yet seeks the flaw
Though eyes have rightly named them.

The gentle hand that touched my cheek
Where careless locks were straying –
That breathless moment locked in time
Insistent scene, replaying …

Perhaps it is enfolding arms
Or beating heart, that taunts me:
Or poet’s soul, so like my own
Whose promise nightly haunts me …

But though a glance might find so much
Within that sight to treasure,
It still was something in the eyes
That sired this aching pleasure.



 You cannot choose the way of your death, but the path you choose will determine its own end.

Very, very well done my friend. Pardon the redundancy.

This is a lovely poem.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Thank you all ... my well has been pretty dry lately, so needless to say I am happy to have it flowing again.  

Happy New Yar to everyone ...

Loved this Kess!!
Verse three is my favorite.
The line....
Alight with mirth, cornflower pools.
