eyes of blue

berthe morisot

tiny steps on endless path,
dawn to evening epitaph.
sunset seems so far away
today, forever’s smiling sway.

summer day’s sudden demise
cooling breeze shall soon give rise.
first sight of turning hue
tomorrow, hints of days with you

At last reality comes of age
slowly winter’s clock turns page
my heart perceives eternal bliss
saddened fear of those I’ll miss

for oft I dream of eyes of blue
summer warmth in days with you
hands clasped in lovingness
sunset arrives in heart’s confess.
