  1597.     

Please smile when you read these words

Please smile, when you read these words
So nobody will know, that I love you;
And don't be afraid, for it's only this,
That I love you, and then please smile,
As if it were only the daily news.

But not the same smile that you use
With her; for smiles are more
Than mere muscular signatures,
For they enclose a private world;
So smile, smile; this is meant for you
And only you;

Smile as if it were only a sweet surprise
Between us two;
Please smile again, as you read my words,
So nobody will know, this love is for you
(And then afterwards, don't forget
to smile for her too)

  1598.     

Please steal these words

Please steal these words
Elevate them, with barely disguised coveting
Caress and claim and court them
As if they always were your own.

No maestro created them,
Or orchestrated a symphony of smooth syllables
To petrify the worlds attention with meaning
To stab its globular eye, with unusual beauty.

Take as many words as you wish
From the wishing fountain,
For there will always be more,
And leave instead only a sigh, a smile, or a tear
To tell the world
That you've been here

  1599.     

Pleasing You

If it pleases you, I'd move the rainbow,
Change the colors, bring the dawn;
Make stars brighter, add more hues-
But only if it pleases you.

If it pleased you, I'd make the ocean
Sing louder than the Sirens,
Make mermaids real, in deepening blue-
But only if I knew that it pleased you.

Pleasing you's the meaning of my days;
And all the years line up the very same:
For every day will still stay just as true-
For evermore, if I keep on pleasing you.

Poem for Pook

Tell the wind the whispers tell
Of the wish left in the well

Sin of love the sinner sins
Sin of whispers in the wind

Love the sinner hate the sin
The poet writes to unburden

Whispers in the wishing well
That to loving sinners tell..
