Best Claire De La Grange Poems

+ Fav Poet


Upon her thorny heart I bleed;
My rose I nurtured from a seed,
With blazing bloom and perfume sweet,
Who pricked me with her warm deceit,
To where I gladly bade her leave.

Her eyes and smile they did precede,
A witchly soul that did deceive,
My love to stumble with conceit;
Upon her thorny heart.

If I could pluck her to be freed,
And rip her from my soul, indeed,
My lesson thus would be complete,
Sough not a love in lusty heat.
To this my penance I accede, 
Upon her thorny heart.

    Even the title contributes to the many double meanings in this write ... I agree with others who have called it a Masterpiece ... it is indeed, Claire and a very well-deserved write to be featured this week at the Soup. Congratulations !
