"The Stranger"


Link to Jerry's Other Poetry

Approaching, a stranger, so ravishing and so fair
Her flowing brunette, waves excitement in the air
A softness and abandon in her intimate campaign
Barely could I manage, my composure to maintain

Her words were like petals on the canvas of a scene
Depicting life and nature on a hillside so serene
And her smile was so radiant & her face so sweet
I was mesmerized, though I tried, I could not be discrete

We married on our first date and divorced on our last
I realize today, that we had married much too fast
Her hair & words & radiant smile, did not make her my lover
What I have learned, is do not judge, a book by its cover!
