Daises of The Revolution

An average woman I am, at most
Possessing a few hush-hush ingredients

What is it about redheads anyway?
With our crimson painted toes
and our limits of Godliness

Too sensitive
Too sparkling
Full of unreasonable charms....

I have quite a collection of vintage coffee cups
and I never learned to play the violin

I reminisce when I make my bed
and my freckles keep me Democratic

My favorite color is like a turquoise sea

I love the Classics in tatterd form
I avoid salmon anything
Play Puccini even after hours

And every other Wednesday night
I close my eyes....
And try not to despise all this skin I'm in.

Cheryl Newton Claim this poet

I have been seriously writing poetry since I was in my early twenties. I am 38 now. I write in my down time. By day I am a busy oncology nurse. At night I turn into a delicious poetress."Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.” ~AristotleThis is only a very small selection of my poems. I have written over 100 (and counting) Love that there is such a great venue as this for those of us who are so creative. =) POETS ROCK! more…
