Grey eyes blessed a boy's birth time skies
aspect of a loner for long years to come.
Manhood adventures heated the heart
and changed eventual chemistry of the eyes.
Grey evolved colour history to new green
green of the Isles it was said for romance.
Celtic chemistry long waiting to proceed
but now full flowered in ecstatic excess
and wonder in him seeing and those now seen.
For green is the light of the poet's soul stages
peering through love upon God's green earth.
Rich is the reward when love words form
and emerald thoughts are put to pages.
Songs reach out and touch each heart
and all connect for life's magic lease.
After that quiet memories are poetic art
and fill a hero's quiet need for peace.
