WOOING REBECCA [for Rebecca Effiong Okon who hates Poetry]

Read Time:45 Second
Wooing REBECCA who hates Poetry…

I met a damsel named Rebecca
Who has the face of an angel sent from heaven.
Now I’m hoping she’s not a heart breaker
…Because she’s got me thinking of her 24/7!

Alas, my Rebecca loves not poetry
And her ears sway not for flowery words.
But then my words are not flattery,
Concocted to bind her heart with cords.

Someone tell me how to breach her heart,
Tell me how to make words melt her metal wall.
Tell me where her heart’s hidden path
Lies. So I can make her heed my earnest call!

Maybe I should rhyme a smiling Sun,
Make the wind hum a rhythm of stricken souls,
Conjure a palace, and make puns
That’ll make her fidget on her tender toes?

Someone tell me, please,
That my soul may find sweet release.

  1. mindyourownfort – I am 59, finally happy in my own skin, a follower of Christ, Mom to some, Nan to nine...soon ten, a knitter, a reader, full of faith and hope, thankful for the good friends who have helped me in my lowest times...if not for the kindness of friends and strangers where would I be? And I have a prayer: Dear Father, let me see your children as you do, may I always have compassion for my fellow man and never turn away a sister or brother in need. Because in turning them away, I am turning you away. Amen.

            I have learnt my lesson with Facebook, I don’t need a shitload of false friends who comment about you on each others pages; especially when they are family members who could care less if your dead or alive. Sorry but Facebook has left a really bad taste in my mouth.
