The wives/Henry ‘s dream

Sometimes when he’s fast asleep,He can still see them all –So different yet so alike,They still make his blood run cold. He sees her all young and proud,No silver in auburn hair,She prays and she speaks aloudIn Spanish- and she’s still there. She dances with ease and grace,So vibrant and full of life,She’s all goldenContinue reading “The wives/Henry ‘s dream”

To A.B.

I wonder why you wouldn’t let me go,Why haunt me through the darkened space?I wonder why you follow high and low,The past I can’t wholeheartedly embrace?.. My headless queen of pain and woe,My queen of scorn, reproach and hate,You’re always there, too bitter and aloneTo fight again with your dark fate. Your eyes still followContinue reading “To A.B.”

My heartContinue reading “My caged heart doth voiceless music make”

Would you to love me then, as you did once,Or would you let me perish,pray?Would you to let me die,Continue reading “Would I to win the crown”

Don’t leave me thus

Don’t leave me thus,All drunk by beauty rare,Enchanted by the eyesAnd hope so vain,That grows within the soulTo wither fastIn cruel light of truth-I pray, be kind to me:Don’t leave me thus. Don’t leave me thus:I am outdone by farBy richer silks,By golden threads so fine,By wreaths bedeckedBy gems beyond compare,By gifts of kingly stubbornContinue reading “Don’t leave me thus”
