After Our Walk Amid The Reeds

Poem By John Lars Zwerenz

The breeze is cool,
But it does not bite.
The world regarded us each a fool,
But there is no longer a reason to be contrite.
Let us stroll beneath the crimson blooms
Which laugh above the brooks of white.
And after our walk amid the reeds,
Let us retire to our palatial rooms,
Among our busts and vases;
Let us look out our grand bay window,
To where swirling siroccos softly blow,
Out upon the moonlit meads.
There, surrounded by fine tapestries,
And the most majestic, eternal art,
In between our lips' bated pauses,
We shall witness blue jays ascend in ecstasies,
As they flutter and dart
To the immaculate seas.
I have waited for this moment all of my life
To possess you as a woman, more than a wife.
For as angels in a crystal palace we dwell-
In the boon of heaven's citadel.

A Gypsy's Life

A gypsy am I, as I rove on the downy dale;
Aside from the taverns, the fields are my only vale.
I drink from my carafe a fairy-fermented brew,
And I dream of fair love, beneath a radiant sky of blue.

Ladies And Men


The window box looks down below
To the avenue where young ladies pass

Our Love

Our love was an ivory boon,
Which reigned with the angels in the night.
We would kiss beneath the moon,
Among the statues in the light.

An Angel's Song

An Angel's Song

We ventured out in the gray of night,
On amber furrows beneath linden trees,

The Rose Garden


Where can we find a cove where love and lute
Are married to the strains of cello and flute,


The morn is giving birth
To the dawn- yet to reign, still budding, undone.
Shall you play the earth,
And me the sun? -
