I’d trip to you like roses

A scent that catches air

Fall wind and travel miles

To catch you as you stare

I imagine at a cold screen

Or a slightly warmer book

Could I would quite change that

And turn to me that look

Oh as you’re glance came focused

I’d take you by surprise

I’d kiss your mouth quite sweetly,

I’d trap you with my eyes

And trap turn trapping trapper,

I’m sure I’d quickly freeze

And filled with sudden weakness

Come falling to my knees

I rest assured you’d catch me

And pull me to your chest

You’d ease this uneasy ache

That quakes within my breast


About Keats

Oh I'm sassy and I'm sexy, So silly sweet-and-sour Delightfully disastrous And deliciously dour I'm flippantly foolish, Filled I am with fear Can't concentrate completely, and my conduct isn't clear But to bravely be my best I Bring bravado back, BEHOLD!

  1. This and “Unbecoming” both…heart-spurred pieces these. Quite romantic. I like the flow and the rhythm to this one better, I will confess, but both are strong pieces – and telling of a lady stricken. Poets are supposed to right from what they know, from passion and the heart – and I dare say these are fine examples of that. Lucky you, to know such tender spirits! Might we all be so lucky as to experience such things. This one just rolled right off the tongue.

    • I feel quite deeply. when I fall in love, I fall in LOVE… and it comes out every which way it can. I guess you could count me as lucky. very lucky indeed.
