' Emeralds And Black Diamonds...

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

Open field, sweet honeysuckle....arouses my yen
Shamrock blades in sparkle by the mid-noon sun
No clouds abide our scape of choice, to pleasure
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, lov' and let me assure you
That Emeralds and diamonds....never fade away

    Diamonds, You my 'Friend' have the flawless Eyes to See.
    I hope you get your way, the next time you lie beside the Maid.
    Blink not, I fear she may Escape.Sad to have to find another Maid Again.
    Kind Regards Philip. (Report) Reply

    Aromatic, reader has to be poised
    Poet talks about sunlight scene
    Reader pulls a moonlight screen
    Enchanting, takes to the peak
    We readers to check the slope
    Rise or fall,
    Emeralds and Diamonds, will rescue.

    Spectacular Show. (Report) Reply

    OH FRANK, I have always been captured by this title and somehow always went to read some other writting of yours, however I am sooo sorry I havn't read it sooner, as it is such a tender piece of love of two young lovers (in my mind I see) viewing so much love and romance in the afternoon of a summers breeze... Your penmanship trully shows your ability to capture and take the reader on a beautifull romantic adventure.... EXCELLENT A TEN! ! ! I too have had an emerald eyes with very tender memories, maybe that is why I love this piece so.......... (Report) Reply

    I loved it! Beautiful, sensuous imagery without even a hint of crassness, as so many 'poets' seem to feel is necessary. (Report) Reply

    When you used the eyes in this one, you are really capturing the moment. To lie down is to but feel relax forever. GOOD JOB! ! ! (Report) Reply
