******* PROMISE *******
Sitting quietly under the tree of oak
To behold what the nature unfolds
I heard the angels in heaven spoke
Of the breed of beauty she enfolds
And anytime she wakes before her folks
No cock will care to crow
And anytime she sleeps without a cloak
No tailor will care to sowShe looks yellow from hair to toe
Her skin yellow to thigh below
I thought her teeth be white as snow
Until she smiles to be yellow

Her beauty shimmers in lake of gold
And glitters like water that do not flow
And whenever rainbow shines out of her soul
The rain refuses to rain to blow us cold

I wear her love to work like coat
To cuddle my skin and give me stroke
For no Coke can please my throat
Like the taste of words she spoke

I’ve found the place my soul can cope
Though I’m penniless I am broke
Yet her presence brings me hope
For hope in love is more than gold

I swear to God I love her so
But flowers do more than I know
I swear to God I love her so
But sparrows do more than I know

I’ll visit the moon like Apollo
To bring her moon here down below
I’ll score for her like Chicharito
And coach her soul like Morinho

And nothing I will not do for my yellow
My pretty looking Albino
For when my soul was roughened with sorrow
She came and ironed out my soul.

One thought on “Promise” by samueldpoetry (@samueldpoetry)

  1. This is cool. Noble theme too. I think the forced rhymes in many places reduced its power though. You were trying too hard. Rhymes have to come through as natural. For example no one will say “tree of oak” in your context, and “until she smiles to be yellow” reads somehow.

    So work on this and make it shine really bright. Well done. Keep improving your art.
