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

 

Lady in a Boat, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Lady in a Boat

Nary a sound, air remains deathly still
Here I am with varying thoughts afloat
Not sure if I am here against my will
Without knowing be this a tomb or boat

Not tethered any way to nearby shore
Drifting aimlessly to I don’t know where
Is obvious that I have not an oar
But yet not willing to claim my despair

Were I to scream is there anyone near
Then comes darkness without having a light
Skin is damp a sign of impending fear
Wondering if this be my final night

As if by lightning was struck by a whim
My clothes and I parted went for a swim
