Lay Me Down

Poem By Linda Harnett

Lay me down,
On eider and on lace,
That I may see the love,
Upon your face,
Lay me in the shadow,
Of your smile,
That I may share my life,
With you a while,

Lay me down,
On silken summer sand,
That I may come to know,
And understand,
Lay me at the place,
Where rainbows end,
That I may be with you,
My love, my friend.

Comments about Lay Me Down

'Lay me in the shadow, Of your smile', 'On silken summer sand'. As poetry, this is as hackneyed as President Bush's impression of a simpleton. That aside, I hope this poem did/ does the trick.

On a beach,
Somewhere,
With sand in my toes,

A flame of gold and blue.

Abandoned tree,
The red and yellow,

No need to say goodbye,
No winter song,
No gentle lullaby,

Perhaps you’ll miss me,
When I’m gone,

Puppy Love

I had a little puppy,
It piddled on the floor,
And every time I mopped it up,
It piddled even more.
