Toss a Line

Toss a line of silver thread to lasso in a star,

Once you’ve got a line attached, then pin it to your heart;

Draw it close, and hold it tight, ¬†and wish upon it, too –

And when you’ve wished, you’ll find that I have now been tied to you!

Sea of Roses

Drowning in a sea of roses,

Petals are what wave composes,

Surf and swell a thorny stem,

Buds and leaves form briny gem.

*

Davy Jones holds rosy key,

Bounding main in rosy sea,

Soul surrenders to the foam,

Surging breakers call hearts home.
