POEM OF THE DAY: A Home Greeting

by Priscilla Jane Thompson (1871 – 1942).

A Home Greeting

A pair of soft, black eyes,
A velvet, dusky, cheek,
A flash of dazzling pearls,
An Eden for me speak.
And next a soft embrace;                  5
My eyes drink to their fill,
The tender, liquid, depth,
Of orbs that ever thrill.
A long, ecstatic, kiss,
That drowns all earthly strife:            10
What gift can e’er exceed,
A pure, confiding, wife?
