One Single Impression: The Stranger

The Stranger

He was tall dark and handsome
tall I like, handsome oh-oh
worries me the dark where come
far away those lands of woe

Him she loves top on her mind
can't be wrong with all her heart
he's so sweet gentle and kind
don't you please take us apart

Honey dear you're still so young
not for you he's much older
round the world I know his mind
just his kind makes him bolder

Slipped away the two of them
now she's lost her heart and soul
will she know heartache from him
mother's lost her only foal

Heifer's in expecting way
way too young new mom and self
oh they say sin doesn't pay
mated well swells master's pelf

I really thought this was a love poem between humans until. . . nice twist and great sense of humor.

humor -- yes. Like the dramatic build up, and the funny twist.

Putting yourself not only in a mother's place but in an animal's? That's just mooooovelous.

I wondered where that was going.

Reminds me of when my dad, who raised herefords, bought a charolais bull. We had the cutest pink and white calves!

Jim my friend. I have been ill for a log time. Don't know if i can write and post again. I am depressed I guess.
Wanted to stop and tell you how much I enjoyed this poem. It is a puzzle within a puzzle. Well done.

love, Melanie-bd
