  • POEM: The Lover by Lesley Diane Sutherland (1/23/2008 6:25:00 PM)

    And this one - a madrigal - I wrote to a very dear friend, who remains alas, only a friend, a good friend, but no more than a friend...

    When summer nights were high
    ------------
    I’ve dreamt of you more nights than I
    admit, those nights when I saw you,
    just you, when summer nights were high;

    those nights when just your smallest sigh
    ignites in me that passion new;
    I’ve dreamt of you more nights than I
    admit, those nights when I saw you,

    and wondering if your passion’d cry
    might tell a tale of you more true
    than I could pry with gaudy lie;
    I’ve dreamt of you more nights than I
    admit, those nights when I saw you,
    just you, when summer nights were high.

  • POEM: The Lover by Lesley Diane Sutherland (1/23/2008 6:22:00 PM)

    ahem. maybe no man is really like that lover, but some of us come close, in our own way. wrote this one somewhat over a year ago.

    industrial erotic charcoal
    ---------
    remnants of arsonist's fire
    that scorched my heart with words.
    your bitter touch, you bird
    of flame, awoke desire.

    metallic songs of sex,
    electric blood and heat,
    your cries of lust so sweet,
    strobe through my numb cortex.

    you beautiful phoenix proud,
    your labial, fiery tech
    has rendered my mind a wreck;
    my soul's an ember-cloud.

    erotic charcoal girl
    of subtle haunting scents
    of nighttimes too intense
    the ash of guilt's a-whirl.

    girl of erotic charcoal
    that embers and flame have built
    let go your shame and guilt
    consume me, body and soul.

  • POEM: Spring Sonnet by Lesley Diane Sutherland (1/23/2008 6:17:00 PM)

    mmm, reminds of descriptions from The Wind in the Willows - same paean of delight to the springtime deities.
