Upon The Rocky Sicilian Shore, by pd Lyons – ruff off the cuff


we did not really call you Promise

but we could have

 

we did completely loose ourselves in the joy

of your deep dark eyes

 

we did believe that you were a promise to us

as we would be to you

 

all your bright and wonderful

all your possibility and purpose

 

we would protect you

we would nourish you

we would teach you

we would dance at your wedding

 

we did not really call you Promise

but we could have
