An Ode To Your Eyes

An Ode to your eyes
filled with wonder and surprise

Kudos to their designer
because they are deep enough to float an ocean liner
Large, beautiful and round are their size
the perfect compliment to their owner who is wise

A high definition window to your soul
that is eons old

Haunting like King Hamlet’s ghost in Shakespeare’s play
such strength and power they convey

Their heavenly like an opera sung by Angels
about metaphysical fables
They glow like a full moon on a hot August night
and overwhelm my mind with delight
The bottom-line is their so darn fine
and I wish she, their owner was all mine.
