The Suitor
So oft' he used to pass my way, and
merrily nod and pass the time of day
with a polite lift of his tall bola-hat
then he'd wander off again

His stature was somewhat portly
yet his  nature charming just the same
I knew him...Read More

Cupid's Arrow
A young suitor stood shyly before her
his heart full of promises yet to bestow
her heart ready to burst with joy.

It seemed that day that angels sung in celebration.

Their eyes did not meet entirely at once
as was customary in polite society,

In her car, the woman in deeepest melancholy sat.
Rain falling, tears falling, splat!

She thought of those many days before.
With many a handsome suitor at her door.

She closed her eyes and she warmly remembered!
Teaching bubbling children in those autumn-hued Septembers.

That cold,...Read More

If beauty was a person, it would certainly be a Liberian girl

Behind those dark clouds, she’s an angel yet to be seen

Before you say I love you in Africa
Think twice before exposing your feelings to a lady 
The center of gravity should be ‘Iphone' because every young girl's heart has its name embedded in it

A riddle, son of Manoah, a riddle are you
Twice came an angel to a barren Danite
Promising rest for Israel, deliverance.
Out of Zorah you came, bold Nazirite
Out of strength came weakness and arrogance.

A riddle, mad suitor, words to rue
Out of Timnah...Read More

Great Talkers

Those blessed with the gift of the gab

To a prospective suitor
Sounds like a Love Poem

A Poetess schemes
A Poetess dreams
In the thick afterglow
Of what’s never to know

Her feelings unsure
Her words premature
Her voice still unnamed
 —her suitor unclaimed

My long awaited companion
Fickle and evasive

Becomes more and more a dreaded reality
But I...Read More

My Medusa
My Medusa

Throwing words away into the ether,
In search of a seeker.
Did you meet her?  Have you seen her?
Does she still believe the holes in her net are catching no suitor?

Looking at the mirror 
with good day’s pleasure
I see slothfulness’ glamour 
taunting with delight’s leisure
Yet ready to attack sense of honor
defying time-worth’s treasure
So defiant; not a generous donor 
offering gift that costs much pressure!

I challenge you, my body’s indolent suitor

Premium Member A Cat A Rat and Paws That Bat
I have a cat that wears no hat;
though her paws do love to bat,
her mice and balls,
all through my hall.

A clever cat,
a feisty cat,
I made her a nice catnip rat;
my hyper-active tabby cat.

A cat with tail all poofed and fluffed;

Twilight Settled Around the Texas Spoon
I've got a tiger by the tail

From the jukebox hidden near the bar
In a West Texas dance hall far
Away on a farm-to-market road
Near a cotton bale load

Deceived o’ bloodred,
Languished droplets bled
Elements purge forlorn
Happily e’er after battle-torn

Cruel lips kiss adieu,
Loathsome toxin askew
Slumber still mercy mine
Ador bared, perpetual decline

Tangled in a web of lies,
In depths of suitor revise
Pierced am I, devious dart,
Enfeeble, via terse impart

Eloped with pillow soft souffle
