Lucy Swain 1861-1896

I know the outrage of a loose evil tongue.
In life, I was...
Angelina and her Swain
swain, for him, lost love,
Neglecting the sun-rays
She comes here each day
Approaches to see the rabbit hole,
Ignoring the fear of animals
As her swain once committed her,
He will come...
I lay my head
swain, horse, love,
I lay my head upon the softness of its mane
My white charger, no knight for a swain
as I am the gallant rider looking for love.
swain, caregiving, husband, pain, sick,
I do not know?

In song, love is a grandiose solo in melodic chains
In poetry, love is fervent rhyme...
swain, love, marriage, wife,

i can do what you can do.
i am three, i am four,

Promising on the petals of pearly purity

ah to be loved

swain, fantasymen, slavery,
Oh kelpie with your dripping mane
seducing valiant men of heart,
who by your spell would all be swain
and every sense in them, depart.
Why weep you...
swain, spring, daffodils,
After the rigors of winter,
Buried by mountains of snow,
Counting the days until springtime,
Delighted to see winter go.
Emerging flowers entrance me,
Fields of daffodils brighten my day,
George Towne 1847 - 1899
George W. Towne
1847 – 1899
From Iowa I came by restless wagon train.
From the mid-west I arrived
With satchel and silken scalp still intact.
I read Proverbs...
Saint George and the Dragon
When I spotted Saint George in a van,
I feared that his horse might be lame.
Or worse, in a Doggomeat can,
when hurt in some chivalric game.
Those Were The Days, I'm Telling You

High School ~
Being asked to search my memory of school 'daze' gone by
is asking quite a lot of me but I promise to give it...

Whore,a huligan mazzle

Sir Harold, Knight, the valiant swain

The shepherd stood on the field, frail,
He knew not what to do when and why,
As the wrathful sun did steep down,
The confused chap followed his...
swain, angst, me, me,
If I become 'RICH'
swain, dream, imagination,
If I get all the riches of the world, will win all stress
I'd snatch you away from all of your business
No order, no shipment would...
The Crime Of Love
swain, confusion, desire, discrimination, hate, judgement, love,

And behold one’s stifle whispering bare,
Or quench thy besmirch of venom thereof,
Or bedight thy fog, doer of despair?
Wonderful tonight - Eric Clapton tribute
swain, love, romance, romantic,
Layla, you look so wonderful tonight.

my land is anon taken.
