' Emeralds And Black Diamonds... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

Lie down lass, with me, in sage green meadows
Your blouse flouncing open, in the teasing breeze
The meadows, feel so cotton, this time of year
Come lay beside me lass, and sense the softness

Open field, sweet honeysuckle....arouses my yen
For passion 'neath th' sparkle by th' mid-noon sun
No clouds abide our scape of choice, to pleasure
An', again I ask you lass, come lay you down by me

Come close my love...these hungry emerald eyes
Beg to stare into your warm, black diamond eyes
Take my hand in bond, my lov', as I assure you
That emeralds and diamonds....never fade away

    a beautiful poem, Frank - with such delightful echoes of 16-17th century poetic conceits, the pastoral tradition and even a touch of the Irish...a delightful offering (Report) Reply

    Wow Frank, this is one of the most beautiful treasures you shared here, so deeply touched that I am almost angry with my hand for not having the talent of painting. I would so love to paint those black diamonds and emerald eyes. The images you shared here are so inspired that will linger with my soul for a long time. Thank you! (Report) Reply

    When heavens are in the love of man and woman,
    now we pretend as purists and ignore the truths
    and go in search of god and heavens in melancholic serious bible chantings.................why go after them................god woman and god man are we, let us love the creation beautifully created by us in the original days.................why simply beat our hearts and weep and sob in silly, stupid meaningless volumes of sermons and preachings without any joy or happiness........................what a write oh divine poet...................your verses are the most sweetest flowers, blossoms, the most shining diamonds on the heart of god............GOD REJOICETH.....................why we have made our gods bleed and cry and sigh and always miserable and sins and negative things alone.............why gods cannot be happy, laugh, enjoy, in our own forms.............as you have written..............every man the male component of god, female the feminine component of spirit.............................gods inside let them enjoy...................our hearts the temples or houses of god......................wow, beautiful, enthralling write...................you are gods own poet..........it seems.
