Sherri (poem)

Come sit by me and listen for awhile

And I will warm your heart with my Sherri

A dream perhaps a walking fantasy

A treasure sent from an exotic isle


Sherri a blessing floating on the breeze

Sherri who hold the secret to all bliss

My promised hope there lingers in one kiss

Sherri whose motion sets a soul at ease


And on and on he went of his Sherri

This stranger who had asked me by his side

His fairy tale on me he did apply

His dream Sherri defied all sense to be


Then as he spoke to something I was drawn

Toward a vision that defied reality

I brushed my eyes to check their clarity

My sight returned to find the man had gone

Beautiful poem, Martin.

Sometimes we can not be certain of the things we think we see

or the words we long to hear.

Mysterious and compelling.

Great job!!

Martin, this is song material. I'll bet if you got the word out, a country star could make great music with these lyrics.

Hey, you played a trick on my mind...I didn't want it to end or have the man disappear. Was this man, you? Loved the poem! Voted it up, interesting and awesome!! : )

This poem took a twist, at least for me. I've got a song stuck in my head: Sherry, by Bobby Valley or Bobby Vinton, I don't remember, but I hear it!
