What shall I bring you, mother dear?
Cried he, fluttering a flustered;
An iridescent pearl from oceans deep, or
Crystal drops of morning dew?
A pretty necklace of tortoiseshell, or
The finest stole of softest wool?
My child, she replied in gentle ways
I want happiness for you always;
Bring me anything you may please
An evening hug or morning kiss
For you are the very core of my life
My love for you eternal, without a price.
Look into my eyes
And tell me that you see
The passion that courses
In our wildest fantasies.
There was poetry in his fingers
To be written on her.
Stay with me, she said
I must go, said he, but remember
Like the sun that sets
I may leave your sight but
I am always here.
He is Winter’s first morning –
Crisp, a fresh air of coolness
Ray of slight smile he wears
Careful steps in virgin snow
Contemplation quietly there.
