It’s when the wind blows,
A promise of tomorrow,
Warm air and sunshine,
Wash away the sorrow.

Life in full blossom,
Flowers in their dress,
Birds sing their songs,
Bugs crawl out of nest.

Winters dreary,
Coldness gone,
Snow stops falling,
Days grow long.

Spring abounds,
In full splendor,
Casting a spell,
Washing away the cinders.

Laying in green grass,
Staring at warm blue skies,
Hoping the season,
Is not a disguise.

About Me

Sad-ManAbout Me
Cleve Sylcox

I can’t and I won’t,
But that has nothing to do with you.

I can and I will,
But it has everything to do with you.

Life in a peach,
The pit in the middle.

Stubborn arrogance,
A cat playing a fiddle.

Nothing and everything,
Can you see the between?

Life is no more certain,
Death we have seen.

Carry on the wind,
The travesty of thought.

Lay my head down,
Your cold icy wrought.

Take it from me,
Give it back.

Love in the heart,
It’s what I lack.

My world isn’t,
But yet it is.

About me but you.

When I first saw you
© 2015 Cleve Sylcox

You know the story well,
I’ve told you more than once,
How, at the church luau,
You turned me into a dunce.

I always felt intelligent,
Not brilliant but a little smart,
When my eyes fell upon you,
My brain fell apart.

You stood by a table,
Talking with a group,
Then you came and talked me,
And my mind did a loop,

Whenever you are near,
I can’t think at all sometimes
I get all goose bumped,
I’m in Love…is that a crime?

Even after Twenty-five years,
Words get lost in your eyes,
You still have that spell on me,
On this I cannot deny,

So, take my hand, If you will,
And follow me, Up the golden hill,

There I can see deep in your eyes,
The moment I became alive…

I Love you dear.
