    Some Wonderful

    Every guy is waiting for her

    The one they love before they’ve met

    Every woman knows it, too

    That diiferent man, they can’t forget


    Primordial sexual archetypes

    Imprint on transfer RNA

    That chemical composite list

    Forms molecular display


    Of who’s that person we’ll let in

    Or gaze a second glance

    The manly guy she’ll let cut in

    From the one without a chance


    And then there’s romance of the nose

    Epithelials in charge

    Some just know and not suppose

    Need I more enlarge?


    Perfume makers have it right

    To market subtrafuge

    For any girl, on any night

    Must act when stakes are huge


    It’s not just getting past the greet

    And into conversation

    That can easily all be rigged

    By approprite libation.


    But discerning guys will keep an eye

    For the maid most natural

    Eschewing paint, and florid musk

    For some more transparent pull


    Is she real, and is she kind?

    Is she truly beautiful?

    And any guy who isn’t blind

    Can discern her wonderful.


    Every heart needs some wonderful

    And knows when ache grows strong

    We were born apart, but to heal the heart

    We must be loved to right that wrong.

    Poems tattle as poets prattle
    About hearts left black and blue
    But beyond the rhyme of this rattled line
    Is there some wonderful  . . . that's you?

    Wow, this is beautiful and so very true in my opinion. Sometimes it feels like a cat and mouse chase game. The meeting. Then at other times I feel I can be loved for who I am. Looking perfect is one thing but acting perfect is another. Its the acting part that I work on every day because I dream of bigger things then fancy houses and fancy cars. I dream of my mansion he is already been building and there is no foreclosure to worry about. Hugz

    I'm not saying I follow after this sort of thought, but it is a splendid departure from reality for those that do... and once they do, it is another, less entertained level of reality that overtakes and has its day with 'the way of lovers'...if I was given to such sentimentality, lol! A bright and clever poem to disclose our trade secrets in public auction. Applause Crescendo!!



    Thank you very much! Harv

    This made me think, rather than my own experiences, about things I've told my sons when choosing a partner... look beyond the facade for some substance there



    This was a remake of the old "falling in love with the dimple and the curl, but winding up with the whole girl" ditty. thanks for you rejoinder. Harv

    Awwww... this is beautiful! A poem that speaks to the heart, telling the reader that there is "some wonderful" in the world for us, its in the heart of that one person... the one person thats waiting for us... :) bravo. ~Audrey



    Packaging is one thing, delivering on what has been advertised is another. Be the one who can deliver, and you will discover love. Harv

    Harver, An alluring and lusty poem of desire written so expertly. A poem to swoon for. ginga

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
