DZ (It was many and many a year ago / In a kingdom by the sea)

To The Poet Blackbird

It seems to me,
(Or am I obtuse?)
But language often,
Is a ruse,
A way to hide,
What thought’s expressed,
A curtain drawn,
A floor length dress,
A fabric sown
To conceal,
A bursting breast
And how it feels;
Your men must be
A difficult lot,
Else why must you
Obscure the plot,
Come my unseen
Chirping bird,
Confess your heart
In simpler words

This is another good one! I personally use Thee, Thy and Thou in mine occasionally, depending on the 'drivel effect' I want; -) All the best. Ronberge.
Lamont Palmer would really hate my poem 'Where Exaltation Bides' then. Not only did I use the word 'thee' but I also used the word 'thy'. Certainly it is twice as drivelous for it.
This is very beautiful. Many love poems end up just like the rest but you've managed to create something very unique. Nice job. Sincerely, Mary
