Poems A Jingle An Angel

Today poems about the sea, the dark eyed angel and a funny jingle poem.

The dark eyed angel

my dark eyed angel
farewell to thee
off i am on a wing
a sailing ship of glee
no sorrow no grief
come away with me
take your ribbons n' bows
tie back your pretty hair
step out upon the sea
and together at last
we shall evermore be.

(for the beautiful dark eyed angel girl who took me home and cared for me when I was lost and broken as a child and I am eternally grateful as I had no one else and no home and would not have survived and I thank her family who took in a strange little girl and cared for her)

a jingle

skinny cat
orange and black
lost at sea
raft, cat n' me
upon a white raft
drifting over to the orient
raft, cat, n' me

the sail touching the sky
a dot on the horizon
gusts of salt and spray
raft, cat, n' me

over the plastic waves
inside a crystal bubble
looking at the phosphorous sky
seeing the whirling stars
staring back at me

all the world from a nut shell
floating in the Caucasus sea
all the world that needs to be
raft, cat, n' me.

oh I read a little jingle poem by another poet and was inspired to do one also as a young girl I wanted to be a poet but I am from a time long ago in another age when there were poets and artists who ruled the world and now in this age we are ruled by greed. No longer roams the poet wild and free ruling the world with his pen.

On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.

Today I am linking to:

Weekend Reflections

Thanks so much to the hosts.



  1. Beautiful reflections in words and photos. Poetry is a very special way to express yourself that mere prose cannot do. I wish you a healthier year ahead full of happiness.

  2. i love the simplcity of your poems and youe photographs are lovely. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you. I wish you good health, happiness and peace in 2018

  3. Artists, visual or poets, have a different, more astute view of the world, than those who have world dominion as their motivation.

  4. Thanks so much for these lovely comments. I will reply on each of your blogs as time permits. I appreciate your comments so much.
