Bout-Rimes




Comes it fleeting, like a butterfly

Elusive to the touch as steam,

Leaving my fervent heart to cry;
Safer this, enjoyed as a dream.

Therein the fragrance of her peppered hair

As we lay beside the limpid lake
Listening to the nickering mare

Knowing, wishing to be late

These dreams and images, but a test

Within my fervid heart to create

A tangled, mind numbing mess.

These racing thoughts do not sedate.

They force the wakened mind to scheme;

Limbs entwined, twisted wicker.

Nickering mare, that's great. I love what you did with these words. You've made this such fun. And, what a beautiful dream. I am sure you did not want to wake from this one. Have a nice day.

This is great! Love the entwined lomb like wicker.

It's interesting to see how the end words triggered other similar words in each of these poems I read, but with different poetic results. Yours is a lovely romance.
