' 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

    Romance in the green meadows
    It is now a sight so rare
    A place of dancing shadows
    Which true lovers ensnare.............

    subtle beautiful words to parch the dried cynic, and sweep the reader in romanticism, there is nothing more treasurable then an emerald or a diamond that which fits the beholders soul, no diamond can ever compare to the beauty of once loving embrace. Fantastic stuff Mr. Ryan, your an impressionist in language, great stuff (Report) Reply

    Love has been improvised with dignity to expand its natural phenomena. Love never ends with setting sun rather flame tolerates our intention to touch the soil by heart. Love demands consent, love demands sanction and ultimately love recognise oneself to be the torch-bearer by its various tails and toils....... So intense the poem with its poetic strict diction......great....great...great. (Report) Reply
