Writing Sample


These paltry eyes of mine
Have brought me favor's grace.
If evil but before them be,
They see Love in its place.
If paltry eyes of mine
Did aught but Love disclose
I'd pluck them out to cast
As morsels for the crows.
Mine eyes have made a feast
Where kin and friends engage.
It is as if life, body, soul
Had gone on pilgrimage.
All day they look and yet
They halt out there to see.
They saw and recognized Love
And have returned to me.
Strange habits have mine eyes
To trade with others' pain.
Love's conquest they have made
Where weapon brings no gain.
