Lover of Eyes or ODE TO EYES

ODE TO EYES
  

Eyes

Hazel or Grey

The biting blue of ice bergs
     Breaking knives into the sea--
The thousand shades of green
     That hide in shadowy golden lashes--
Brown cold as winter bark
    beside the frozen sea--
Black with fierce passion
    of a ship in silhouette
     Coming to the rescue.
      
Each enfolds a Splendor.
Beauty is magnified by its
mutability--

Eyes flash hot to cold
   Faster than a chemist's burner.
Provocative in timelessness,
   Eyes can haunt forever, and forever they enslave--

Fortune, infamous for cruelty,
    Is kind in this respect--

Years do not diminish
The magnificence
Of 
Eyes.
