TO YOU WHOM I SAW ONCE, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: I remember / that your eyes were tranquil
Last Line: And secret dreams.
Subject(s): Dreams; Hearts; Love - Beginnings; Memory; Passion; Nightmares
that your eyes were tranquil
with the shining loveliness
of some dark pool
that holds the mirrored radiance of stars.
that your smile
was like an unexpected glimpse
of lifted wingsas when a cardinal
flies home against the dusk.
that I might have hid my face
against your heart,
confessing all my fears
and secret dreams.
