Bernina – A tribute

Remember Audrey Hepburn, when she played Sabrina?
Did you listen to the songs, by that one diva Tina?

Those that say first love is blind
at best, must be
insipid tim’rous fools.

One glance upon your well proportion’d lines,
my heart was drawn
by your magnetic pull.

You fill my mind, no matter where I go
your face appears,
Oh Dax I love you so!

And yet I fear…


Days pass by, months stretch to years,
I wait alone
for smallest love returned.

Am I the fool to shed my ready tears,
about a love
so likely to be spurned?

My heart is fixed. In faithful tender tone,
I will be blind
to Serif and Didone.

Oh Dax, be mine?


Life would be a different place
with you, my love,
to aid in each design.

Your worthy form could lay a page with grace,
your words, I know
would better any line.

Twas meant to be – my heart is sure of this,
for Cupid’s bow
has spoken not amiss…

… Dax, Romeo.
