If I could have held your hand.

Dancing Girl.
Pencil drawing.


If I could have held your hand
Found words to make you understand
But I could only look upon
The beauty that within you shone
For never a prettier thing
Could ever come to dance and sing
And with the music you did flow
Enchanting those that love you so
For each little move that you make
You create much more than you take
Bringing beauty for its own sake
And love and virtue in your wake
But my dance went all wrong
And my chance is forever gone
Just like the music of the song
Now you will have to move along
For words could never ever say
The things to make you by me stay
And you did slip from my hand
To the grip of another man


The Dance of Creation.

Oil on canvas.

The art and poetry are great to see and read. Thank you for that combination, so rare these days.

I answered your question about what did the Blue Jay look like before I messed with it and put the actual photo on the same post. Now, if you have time, you can return to my birds blog and see for yourself.

Thanks for asking. I think it made a better post and I also included the sounds they make

You have an incredible eye for detail and your poetry never fails to inspire me.

Love both, the first dancer so
earthy and the second dancer her
ethereal sister.

I truly enjoyed this poem! The musicality and profound descriptions are brilliant. Having said that, I do have one suggestion: make everything stay in the same tense (either all past or all present).
