He Wrote it for Me

One of my favorite poets here is Craig Cornish. He made me fall in love with the sonnet. :) He coached me in getting the meter right. It has become my favorite form to write in. This is a poem Craig wrote for me. I'm so honored! :)

Menina que Passa for Eileen

She saunters along the boardwalk
more confident than in her youth,
when young men would swoon
and older men were wishing to be
           young     again.
She meanders   next to the surf    laughing
at the sea's efforts to catch her toes   
in a rush of briny bubbles   tickling
the grains of sand hurry away.

She strolls    and as the sea 
eddies and pools in her footsteps

like the memories that wash her mind

tosses her hair    face to the sun   and
      embraces the day

She wanders near   the smooth stones
polished by the relentless tides

like days and years they come and are gone
come and are gone

but   with each    a blessing

she ambles among those blessings
with a flair     and an  aire

she has that "Something"

that "Je ne se qua"    and she is beautiful

Craig Cornish

To me, a gift of words is one of the most treasured gifts I could ever receive. Thanks, Craig, for making me feel beautiful today. :) Hugs

    Wonderful work with great thought given to the subject mater as it is rapidly unfolded for the readers delight. Nice flow of words and a pleasant sounding poem with all the right stuff to evoke familiar memories that are easy to relate to. The words say a lot and convey strong emotions without a lot of window dressing. Emile.
