' 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

    Sweet and romantic, shades of courtship in the old days when men had to woo and charm and win the heart of a woman, and wait for the cherished answer. (Thank you for reading my poems FJRjr.) (Report) Reply

    Romance in the green meadows
    It is now a sight so rare
