Ruby's Eyes



Enough to make
The heart to quake…
The smile on Ruby’s lips

Enough to cause
The pulse to pause…
The curve of Ruby’s hips

Enough to light
The darkest sky
The sound of Ruby’s sighs…

Enough as such
The feel and touch
The heat of hands and thighs

Enough…and yet
The most stunning sunset
Canna’ match the light

Not the brightest moon
Nor the brightest star
Nor the warmth of a night in June

Are not the equal of
But only a sequel to

…The light in Ruby’s eyes…

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
