There She Stood Amid The Jars

Poem By Pat Royce

There she stood amid the jars
Waste high across the bar
Bathed in lamplight
soft and won
here smile ellipsed
and kissed the sun

And in here cheeks of amber brown
a poppy flush
that waned a frown
warmed a heart
and lit the ground
a lantern to here beauty

Eyes bright
Passion
deep
soft so warm began to speak
Telling me be gentle friend
This is real and not pretend

And thus she stood amid the jars
This the pretties girl of all the bars
Praise be luck she smiled for me
The prettiest smile for all to see

How could I not have loved here

Your Eyes Are Blazing Diamonds

It's simple when I see you
My heart beats like a drum
Your eyes are blazing diamonds
Your smile the worming sun

Enlighten Me To The Mysteries Of Your Darkness

I see that we are strangers know
Though I know we could be friends
So please
Switch the last emotion for the first

My Little Butterfly

The butterfly in all here bawers
Mingles softly with the flowers
Here gentle wings on high duth break
With summer zephyr's consummate

Fire And Earth

Love as soft as
Fleeting Fay in the moonlight shadows
Love as pure as
Dancing sunbeams

We Are But Lucid Dreams

The breath of life is love
Surrounding every grain of sand
Joined by the indivisible soul
Each and all a creation of the 'Big Brother in the sky'

Along The Cobbled Street

As I’m walking,
I hear my tapping feet,
I’m walking on the cobbles,
Along the cobbled street.
