Bidh mi a ’deàrrsadh, chan ann a’ losgadh/I Shine, Not Burn

Bidh mi a ’deàrrsadh, chan ann a’ losgadh,
Agus rinn mi e gus nach b ’urrainn dhomh,
Sin nuair a chleachd mi an solas agam airson miann a losgadh,
Gràdh, a ’chiad fhear agam ann an aois òige,
Thòisich cridhe gleansach a ’losgadh,
I bha e a ’losgad...

What I Face When I Look In the Mirror

When I look in the mirror as occasion does occurr,
I find that what I wish to see will never be there,
I see no second face to compliment mine,
I see likeness in my family that follows our design,
What I see when look is eyes too far apart,
T...

What Happened to Icarus

My wings in good shape flap as that of birds, They carry me into the heavens, I will touch the sun, My fathers warnings far behind me, I soar through the sky,The sun is in my sights, And my eyes burn by the light, But then when calls of warning fl...

Helen’s Lament: Fallen Troy: Back to Greece

Here I stand and lament, Troy has Fallen, Paris is dead.
I’ll be back in the land of Greece, O’ my sadness is supreme
What of life that once I owned, why Menelaus did I chose
To steal away one night to fate myself in doom
Oh Paris no more have our...

Ilona

Sapphire eyes with amber flecks,
The daylight entwined in her hair,
Love divine,
Softest lips,
Fairest skin,
Rosy cheeks,
And heart of gold.

The sweetest girl you’ll ever meet,
Oh, so sacred,
And unique.

Dragons, Ice, and Fire

In the shape of love they sit,
But in their piercing eyes is found,
A hate that man cannot bestow,
But lots of love their hearts do show,
Love that’s fire, but still unknown,
The hate like ice is moving in,
But love like fire melts ice and
s...

Evening Wish

I once wished upon a star,
my little wish has come so far,
it stood once by the evening star,
But a wish of course,
much like a dream,
makes its way into reality.
Twas a cold night,
an evening bare,
clouds lined the skies,
the light nowhere.
B...

Hope in the Night

One night when no light was about,
A single star came out,
Small and shimmering in the sky,
A tiny glint upon my eye,
We named it hope,
For in the night,
It was the last one shining bright.

The Way of Time

Every wonderful moment is the first glint of sunshine in a sunrise.
And the hard times are endless nights it seems.
But all the time that’s inbetween is the time when our patience is tested,
for it is the time to wait.

When Love Bleeds

I’ve been kissed by rain and snow,
So now I know there is such thing as a salty kiss,
But only when love bleeds.

A Tragic Time in Youth

There sat an ingénue called Iulia with a tragic life upon her,
Only a youthful teen she was and still she’d lost it all,
So she turned inure rather than face her imbroglio and live.
Her statue in the garden represents the troubled youth
Who’s you...

Aphrodite

Born of Sea Foam, raging seas,
Made of Beauty, all but vain,
Clothed in Chiton, finest clothes,
Diva lovely, smart by bit,
Goddess fair, of ancient Greece,
Aphrodite, known for love and beauty

My Home In the Meadow

Spring sprung out of the ground,
It made a home for me,
Among the romantic Roses,
Mysterious Orchids,
Gentle Cornflower,
And the canopy leaves.
