And if you were paying attention to the broadcast, I said I’d see if I could find some old teen poems I wrote…. Oh gosh, here we go! -blush-

 

Ye, and there we were, wordless,
Melting into the twilight,
Our eyes burning with desire.
With songs of unspoken words,
Ringing in our ears.

Your lips, soft satin,
Perfumed with your scent.
My sweetest secret love,
Let me rest within your heart.
I’ll wrap you in my wings o’ silver,
And fade into the crystal sky.
For you are my rose, and it’s about time to fly.

~ The Rose, Elle Beaumont, 2005

 

Silent tears resting upon the petals,
The sun tastes of hope..
Hearken to the fear-stricken heart,
For the dusty dragon prays upon the truth.
Empty the cup of sweetness,
Into the air of truth.
Drink the passion dearly,
For castles in the distance droop.
Steal a dream of ambition,
Lift your praise to the sun,
Caress the gentle wings of days,
And bountiful seeds of love.
Pull your thoughts from the river,
And speak the unspoken.
For a word in the twilight,
Is like a feather to the cheek,
A bee buzzing ‘cross the eyes.
Lips..e’er wishing for the harp of rest.
Welcome to the incoherent Winter..

~Incoherent Winter, Elle Beaumont, 2005

Until next time, keep smiling and happy reading!
