Magpie 171

 Morris Graves ~ 1979 


Old Blue Eyes

he was "treble trouble"
crooning his way out of messes
with melancholy ballads
singing "sorry, oh so sorry"

lyrics meant to
soak up the hurt
erase all the pain 
alter your mood 

sexy sweetness
we could not resist
complicating the issue  
his eyes were incredibly blue

  1. Oh,
    the damsel done wrong?
    the unrequited love?
    the troubadour of troubled times?

    So what.
    Even if his eyes were blue,
    I think
    you let him
    get away
    with far too
    much.

    Blessings and Bear hugs, anyhow!

  13. Music is the food of love. As are eyes. They both seduce whether they belong to Sinatra or another.

  14. Such perfect symmetry; your picture, your poem, your imagery. I've known blue eyes like that, too. Superb.
