Where oh where could my Hoot Owl be?
I have asked for a dance, but she hasn't answered me.

Maybe I was too late, her castle's already been stormed
Her night in shining armour her heart's already won

But I shall not give up, I shall not turn from the quest
I know that at some point this knight in shining armour, a damsel will be blessed

So if you are out there listening damsel hoot owl Ruth
I am not giving up, I'm saving my dance for you

I'm lost in your eyes, and captivated by your stare
I hunger for every word you speak, and the poems that you share

Still you fall so slowly, scared of the pain you've felt before
You've bent until you've broken, but here's what I've got in store

If you fall I will catch you, if you cry I'll be there
I'll love you if you let me, until then I'll simply care

You can tell me all your secrets, I can tell you mine
Or if that's too demanding, we can leave the past behind

Now our nights at its end, I deffinitely enjoyed this dance
Still I'm wanting something more... it's time to take that chance

So I lean in so slowly, my heart rest upon my lips
From the first day that I saw you, I've been thirsting for this kiss...

Oh my, a dance he offers me
This Knight in armor shining
He storms my castle with his words
So calm and so inviting
He asks me bare my armor
Bridge space across my moat
And from the words he's written here
He's read what I have wrote
He knows this maiden's frightened
To let down her defenses
And yet he comes so unafraid
Could it be he's lost his senses?
And I ask, kind Sir, what happens
When I stand there bared of all
Will you reach out to protect me
And catch me when I fall?
Or will you take me for a ride
Upon your pale white horse
Then leave me standing by the road
Scared a little worse?
I have asked not for a Knight
With armor shining bright
But rather for a caring man
Who'll hold me in the night
Who'll face me in the morning hours
Who'll kiss my fears away
Who'll teach me how to trust again
And never go away

To my damsel in distress,
I can tell that you've been hurt before so I won't lead you on
All I wanted was a dance not to take you home.
Not that I don't think you're pretty or have a loving heart
There's already someone in my life who plays the loving part
Sorry if you misunderstood or misconstrued my reply
But I thought this was all in fun , I don't know why

Oh Sir Jeffery 'tis all in fun
This little play in rhyme
There is no need to be distraught
For I too have one of mine
I have enjoyed these words of ours
Exchanged in poetry
And I'm flattered that you've asked to dance
With a little owl like me
Yes, it's true, I have been hurt
And bare my share of scars
But I've overcome, and now I am
Shooting for the stars
Worry not, this owl you see
Is not the fragile kind
And hearts once broken, so can heal
Just keep that thought in mind
I fly on wings that once were broke
I see with eyes once blind
I sing with voice that once was mute
And I've put the past behind
I've met someone who comforts me
Who supports all that I do
I'm glad that you have also have
Someone who's all of that to you


Jeffery...thanks for the exchange and the inspiration. Thanks also for the dance

My dearest Ruth I'll be your knight
dressed in armor tall,

I'll be there just to hold your hand
or catch you when you fall.

You need not ever worry dear
of broken wings and such,

I'll mend them with my kind sweet words
and soothing gentle touch.

Your words have helped inspire me
to write some wonderous works,

So come with me to fields of green
and forget the other jerks.

lol....whos next.

Chris...thanks for the smile on this rainy morning  


Oh Sir Chris, my dance cards empty
You may have a dance me
We'll waltz around this crowded room
As happy as can be
We'll show the others how it's done
As gracefully we flow
Upon the floor with gentle steps
We'll move about real slow
I'll put my arms around you
You'll look me in the eye
We'll have the poets talking
The rumors will all fly
Oh brother, an acomplice
And when I do just fine
Getting myself in trouble
It happens all the time  


Thanks for the dance

Oh Ruth you've swept me off my feet
my heart, you set to flutter..
and when I look you in the eyes
all that I can do is stutter.

I'll turn us round this dance floor till
our feet can take no more
and when you finally kiss my cheek
we'll waltz right out the door....

chris

I can see the rumors flying
But I don't seem to care
In your arms I'm dancing
Floating through the air
I can hear your soft voice calling
As you whisper in my ear
"Just a moment longer"
And then you pull me near
Time is quickly passing
Though it seems it has stood still
The nearness of your body here
Is taking all my will
Alas the dance is ended
We stop here on the floor
I turn and whisper quietly
"Chris, how 'bout one more?"
