Poetry Is A Healthy Verbose, So indulge In Nailah's Favorite Poem Friday......

A Certain Lady 
By Dorothy Parker 

Oh, I can smile for you, and tilt my head, 
And drink your rushing words with eager lips, 
And paint my mouth for you a fragrant red, 
And trace your brows with tutored finger-tips. 
When you rehearse your list of loves to me, 
Oh, I can laugh and marvel, rapturous-eyed. 
And you laugh back, nor can you ever see 
The thousand little deaths my heart has died. 
And you believe, so well I know my part, 
That I am gay as morning, light as snow, 
And all the straining things within my heart 
You'll never know. 

Oh, I can laugh and listen, when we meet, 
And you bring tales of fresh adventurings, -- 
Of ladies delicately indiscreet, 
Of lingering hands, and gently whispered things. 
And you are pleased with me, and strive anew 
To sing me sagas of your late delights. 
Thus do you want me -- marveling, gay, and true, 
Nor do you see my staring eyes of nights. 
And when, in search of novelty, you stray, 
Oh, I can kiss you blithely as you go .... 
And what goes on, my love, while you're away, 
You'll never know. 

By Dorothy Parker 

'Oh Miss Parker your growing on, 
Your slick words have charmed me, beguiled me
I would of have thought you was me, born the same day as my father, and died on the day I became me
How could this be-
Your understanding is treacherous, and has made me a wretched
Teach me your loquacious chant 
And let me one day be poet as you were, and never regret it
Your linguist style bedazzled me- insignificant me,
Let your words of rhyme bring me to the significances that you've achieved.
I thank you for being you, and never changed in this ol so world, that can be ol so blue.` ~ Nailah D'arcy 

Have a great weekend
