A gift bestowed under the clear blue skies [Terzanelle]

by Debbie   Apr 16, 2007


I see my fated stars within his eyes,
as his orbs melt me as the sun does to snow-
a gift bestowed under the clear blue skies.

He reveals, it seems, in an earnest glow,
making my young heart skip a thousand beats,
as his orbs melt me as the sun does to snow.

Those mystic pools fail to reflect deceit.
He held me captive in his earnest glance,
making my young heart skip a thousand beats.

Like an arrow through the heart, I'm entranced.
With such depth and passion blazing no guiles,
he held me captive in his earnest glance.

What magic lies on his gaze with no vile?
Oh, how can such eyes bring to my soul mirth
with such depth and passion blazing no guiles?

It is the time for my heart's love rebirth.
I see my fated stars within his eyes!
Oh, how can such eyes bring to my soul mirth?
...A gift bestowed under the clear blue skies.

    Wonderful piece, greatly written. It holds so much beauty within the lines.
    My favorite stanza is:
    -Those mystic pools fail to reflect deceit-
    He held me captive in his earnest glance,
    Making my young heart skip a thousand beats.-

    This poem is certainly unique and very few could have written it this well I'm sure. I have a hard time attempting to write these poems because I know if one line is off, the whole poem is as well. But you were perfect in everyway and I love the way you make even the hardest of formats look so easy. Amazing job as always 5/5 GG23
