It’s usually said
sometime with dread
when excited there’s no head
and that’s very true
the brain often flew
wanting something new
can’t stay still very long
I’m up and quickly gone
feeling wonderfully strong
I’m a child of eight
who wont stop even at a gate
for this is going to be GREAT!!
and should you be able to stay
lots of fun co...

I could forget everything and live in this moment forever,
tugs on the heartstring like a beautiful voice in song,
words are the dreams the heart makes,
all now of the dream I have is a requiem.

They say the night has a thousand Eyes,
It's beauty no one denies,
The nocturnal passing is cool and crisp,
The mind creates ghosts from a single wisp,
No man knows night truly,
Man knows it comes by dark and cooly,
It has a feeling of enchantment,
Beholders are usually lost in the moment,
The glazed eye that is the moon comes ever slowly,
In the dark speckled sky, people watch them longi...

a walk at Robert Frost’ old farm
heavy snow was falling
as I walked the New Hampshire
woods of Robert Frost’ old farm
I had been here before
in the fall when
the leaves were splashes
of color hanging on the branches
now the leaves were gone
the snow was resting
where the leaves had been
in the distance I
caught a glimpse of movement...

If your minds eye was open,
Would you consider an unabashed divulgance?
Your forthright nature checks my exubernace
Your beauty makes me timourous
I suppress my passion in fear of your answer
Do i dare wonder about consequence?
You make me feel alive, there is no other, there is no level i can gratify
I would be yours, if not for the latitude of convention.
You bring me joy...

Can the difference in our souls be overcome?
The asterism of our fates cannot so opaque.
It is ironic that what we both seek can be defined in a chronograph of sand.
You have so far to travel and yet your peace is already found
I long to tell you of the falsehood of my pretences
To unlock the anacucis of your affections to me would more beautiful than a strand of your auburn locks...

The red dust of Mars settles on my heart,
only her will can stop the thrashing of cymbals that call me to her.
Every cascade of flaxen strength undermines the facade of purity
but the tilt of her smile will resound everpresent.
Ablazen are her cobalt eyes, I draw strength from their tranquility
she could not know the foundation she raises the pyre of my love,
the freckled shoulde...
