April 14th — A Poem A Day

My Brown-Eyed Sue

Susan, bold as she can be,
Pretends no maiden modesty;
… flaunting her charm,
… city garden or farm,
She is a sight to see.

Brown gaze lifted toward the sky,
Bold as the sun, yet soft as a sigh;
… sweet blossom of spring,
… a pretty, young thing,
She sings, give love a try.

Susan, fresh as she can be,
Dances in fields wild and free,
… bumble bees in her hair,
… yellow skirts all a flair,
She is the love for me!
