Specimen

I will be your specimen
I will be splayed on your slide
I am ready to be spliced
And many times divide

I can be your curio
Your very personal studio
Observe me, display me
I am at your mercy

I am willing to be putty
Moulded into a puppy
Following you faithfully
Through every nook or gully

Anything to be at your side
Observe away it is your right
Make notes check reactions
You had me the word go since

A crazy sublime feeling
A master subterfuge
My head is already reeling
If this isn't love true

What a beautiful poem and how lucky Ruth is to have this!
This is an expression of love so poignant that it brings tears to my eyes, Fred. I love your unexpected use of colour - the red of your love is such a sudden flare of passion, the gold so rich.
Just LOVE the honest Passion in this Fred! Well Done! Roger Cornish.
I like the connections here implied to all that is, the sense of your interconnectedness and that of your Ruth to the natural world. Lovely poem, Fred.
