Lady in Gray, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Lady in GrayLady in Gray, Sir Daniel McNee (1859)

Lady in Gray

Viewing you from a sizable distance
Coming closer I must apologize
My acute brashness to your appearance
But beauty as such you cannot disguise

Brazen surely, but I mean you no harm
Respecting the gold upon your finger
Your blue eyes tell the withholding of charm
If not imposing I wish to linger

The softness in the way you move your hand
Deftness is shown in every stitch you make
If could mend a broken heart would be grand
With your gentle touch quelling my heart ache

My now querying heart would leap with joy
To know that your ring is a mere decoy

Husband, Father, Grandfather, Lover of all beautiful things. I love to read and write poetry. My favorite hangouts are libraries and museums and yet I love being outdoors. I am a dreamer of things that could be.
