First Line: I think the way I like you best
Last Line: And kiss their lips with whispers and moans.
Subject(s): Lakes; Pools; Ponds


I think the way I like you best
Is when you wear upon your breast
The mirrored likenesses of trees
And little fingers of the breeze;
Or let the silver birch look down
And gaze upon its lovely gown,
Trimmed by you with ruffles of blue
And specks of sunbeams woven through.
Though, when the sun is sinking low
And clouds are clothed in afterglow
Burning in beauty, fold on fold
And you become a sea of gold
That dreads the heavy hand of night
Jealously grasping jeweled light --
For then, you seek the solace of stones
And kiss their lips with whispers and moans.
