Creaking back and forth
She rocks in time
I stare unseen
The sunlight bleeds from her pores

Iris Ingenue
Bundled in her chair
Stares into the frosted grey covered day
She sighs in tune

I shiver with cold
Warm thoughts make me stay
Others dance on by and birds fill the sky
The day is getting old

I close my eyes and hide from dull, dark days
To find a smile between the sun and rain
Dusk breaches dreams of her on cue
I pine for Iris Ingenue

The empty chair stands cold
I hear a sigh - I spin
And with those emerald fire orbed eyes, she stares
Into my soul
