Caroline, Created


Caroline, Created

When the world begun
It was done on a dare
The moon and the sun
And the rocky shore there
She has shaken them all
From her long and incomparable hair.

It was only to bring
A tuesday in spring
With a fan turning lazy above
She wore only her glory
And you not a thing
When she taught you the meaning of love.

There are flocks in her eyes
And night in her bones
And she is never
Never
Alone.

When the world begun
It was done on a dare
With the yin and the yang
Of your hands everywhere
And your precious beliefs
She has shaken all these
From her long and incomparable hair.

This caroline sounds like a right fire-cracker. ;-) I love the image of 'shaken them all... From her long incomparable hair'. It's a great image and makes me feel alive.

I had wanted to write a poem about first Lesbian experience and how, for some of us at least, it opens up a whole new world.

Your pen is dipped in gold Ms. Simmons. This is possibly one of your finest.

Love these:

"When the world begun
It was done on a dare"

"It was only to bring
A tuesday in spring"

"night in her bones"

Great ending, the way you brought earlier elements into a completely different light.
