SEVENTY-TWO YEARS TOGETHER
NOTE: A POST ON JULY 10, 2010 INSPIRED ME TO
"COPY-CAT" AND I WISH TO THANK YOU THANK YOU (echo?)
CLAUDIA FOR ALLOWING ME SOME LICENSE IN USING
YOUR IDEAS AND A FEW OF YOUR OWN WORDS.
I HAVE IMMENSE RESPECT FOR YOUR
TALENT AND YOUR BLOGGING.
Your were age nine, I tender five
So young we, but very much alive
My mother gave you to me
And me to you. You see
It was not a marriage made in heaven
Me only five, and you...eleven
I touched you... I lovingly smelled.
(Relationship in doubt for several years)
You vibrated, and "OH!" you yelled
'Til screaming hurt Peeps' ears
Eleven was heaven
They said it could never, ever be done
My hands could not fit your body
I touched your smoothest neck--and you were won
Over. I drank of your muse like a toddy
Unseemly to most--this marriage in heaven
When one was five, the other eleven
As I rubbed my hair over your rounded top
You had never, ever said "Stop!"
Ribs on your sides, they loved my touch
"Maybe", said the Peeps, "Way too MUCH!"
Heaven and earth had waited
Eleven and five finally mated
My fingers slide over your body, pluck your strings
Slip around your neck, to do just those things
Which drive you to rhythmic shaking
My lips brush slowly over sanded slopes
Kiss cherry-stained covering of God's wondrous art
The rest of me standing there...still...feet apart.
Whilst all of nature with me hopes
So good to spend time with you
We've spent lots of time together...
Hours of holding you, now not so new
Bliss'ly tied with our hearted tether
I fell in love with your smooth sound
You stole my soul from first moment.
I held you then, under my arms
As if to shield you from harms
Since, I tried countless others
But none ever to compare
With you, here, next to me
While those others just stare
You react quickly to what I suggest to do
I love to express all my emotions through
You, always true to your word
Forever gone wherever I lured
You are a mirror of my soul
You are earth, I am the mole.
When we perform, we love
And the Peeps below and above
Share with us All the Joy
Now at the end
It is now
I merely five
Many, many winters ago
On a farm far, far away
Amid flying snow
I love you
