Sunshine glistens in your dark raven hair It causes your devotees to stop and stare I think that you are oblivious and unaware Your label should say please handle with care You are a rare creature I must declare Why can't you be tamed? Must I beware? I want to touch and ride you across the Delaware But I’m terrified of your penetrating glare Alexis Y. 7-24-17

This is really nice. I was at first thinking it was a woman. But now I am thinking it's an animal. Ride it across the Deleware. Hmmmm.

Wow! This one knocks me upside the head. I think I'd turn tail and run from this critter. Some great lines, but more than that this poem does a tap dance on my brain cells and I get that "Wow" thing. Going into my faves. Hugsnickles ~ j
