A love in verse


Performed by

You’re as wise as you are pretty 

When you say to me “Let go”

And when I think it a monstrous pity

That time passes, it’s daft I know

For though I remember the girls dependent

Young and vulnerable and small

And have regret, yet they’re resplendent

Now, grown up, attractive and tall

And I still have their lovely mother

To grace my days as I grow old

And feel ashamed I want it other

Than what it really is: pure gold

Yet! I cannot but remember such things were 

Being of childhood things a connoisseur


In The Night

In the night I find your hand

Squeeze and feel your pressed reply

The truth of love I understand...

After the Decision

Stay with me in the race. I’m hanging in the saddle

Almost off. Reach now from your sure mount

And steady me. Seat assured...
