Thine Eyes

Updated on March 24, 2013
Source

I ask thee to bear thine eyes before me,

Let me see what they may offer.

May mine own truly parallel thee

In the shade of thine iris softer.

Specks of brown and luminous gold

In the faded light untold

Accented, entreated and sumptuously bold

Nothing there that may be cold.

I hearest thine song, O siren mine,

No need for any more silent tears;

Ye may release thine c’oeur in kind,

Those days have pass’d for untold fears.

And I willst promise forever to thee

Mine own heart and soul unscathed,

If ye hast will to return to me

Thine loving spirit willst remain pure and untainted.

‘Tis thine time for untold pleasure

This will be the era for thee,

Though nothing truly lasts forever

Walk with me for the best is yet to be.

      Beautiful words and I do love archaic language.

      I took peace, a feeling of wholeness, and belonging from your words.

      This was one of the first things that I put on Hubpages...for some reason, it never went too far. Thought that I'd spread it around a little, and it gave it a little more exposure.

      Hey Deb,

      What fun! Beautifully rendered...a nice mix of romance, mystery, longing and mutuality. I think you must have been listening to mating calls all day :~))

      I actually don't need any person to walk with me. I am one with nature, and what I see there defies anything that humanity could ever hold a candle to. Thanks for visiting, and your heartfelt comment.

      No, not that scenario. I wrote that years ago, while in Maine. Must have been the clean air that got the creative juices flowing in the country. I actually wrote quite a few things during that time period.

      For a poem to sway me takes much and this one has me swaying and swooning. Ah, the poet will always call for his match in life and often walks by without knowing their paths may have already crossed. I wish you find that soul to walk with you. Perhaps you'll relate to my own writing esp "A Simple Request"

      Thank you, girishpuri! I do a poem or two once in a while, but I'm really not much of a poet.

      Thanks, kashmir! I haven't had that much experience with poetry, so sometimes, you just have to take the plunge.
