The Charm Of Rudolph Valentino

The silent era of Hollywood cinema produced this wraith of a legend. My tribute to the advent of Valentine's Day.

Come-Hither Look

Come see me, dearest, unclothed
where the seas move and crawl,
where the grass is green, and the
sky, so blue; so lush are the forest,
verdant and pristine are the trees,
ideal for our nest.

We, together, will see the stallions
in the sky, feathered beasts as only
you will look up with as tender delight
as you'll hear the brooks below which
murmur or echo eternity.

Look Into My Eyes

Ah, the glades, for sure, the clearings,
there aren't like you and me, as much
alone as poetry has ever prepared for
us, are there? Only pure paradise!

You will look into my eyes and see the
rainbows, glance closer and find the
waterfalls that await your tomorrows,
yet at the moment feel me at standstill,
like at Springtime, you won't lose my
grip around your naked eyes.

Oh, I'm Falling In Love!

Speak in metaphors, so I'll understand
you, for only in figures of speech such
signs, our souls do comprehend, as
crystals often dispenses with words to
align themselves with the stars, shining
and bright.

So look again into my eyes, see me my
snowfall beneath, my autumn and my
summer; yeah, how my eyelids flicker
to entice you into romance that'll never
end, a love that mystifies!

Happy Valentine's Day, Wikinutters (Part 1)! In the meantime, listen to the song of America which is related to the article "Right before my eyes." Thank you for reading.

So lovely, dear Buzz. The pictures, the poem, the song and Valentino, all together on one delightful page. However, I think you have a likening to Valentino and you are certainly as charming.

I did send it, Ivy. Maybe you overlooked it and so inadvertently deleted it. At any rate, that seems moot. I was just calling your attention to the new messaging on Wikinut. Hugs!
