Poem of the Week 3 – O’Dwyer

Eyes that so simply outflow
That extend that warming smile, beautiful face
Deepening shade of within
Her enchantment with embrace.

Poem of the Week!

Her Eyes – By Mark, My Words (Mark O’Dwyer)

Today my Poem of the Week is by a poet who has already been featured on this Blog, the amazing Mark O’Dwyer!
‘Her Eyes’ is a strikingly emotive piece of poetry, its language beautiful and evocative. The poem pulls you in and is irrisitable in description of a man’s deep love for his partner. It speaks of the eternality of love, yet also its intrinsic mortality.
I won’t talk for too long about it as I believe it is best summarised by the International Library of Poetry in their comments on the poem below:

“This is a poem of praise that explodes with admiration and torrent of verse. We cannot help be caught up in the poet’s ardent text. Such acclamations reveal a purity of spirit that all but the most cynical
will find uplifting”

– The International Library of Poetry, USA, 2003

I am fortunate enough to have met Mark in person and he is as wonderful as his poetry! The poem is below in full as always and I encourage you to visit Mark’s Facebook page and his Latin Dance School Lets Dance Co.

 

Eyes that so simply outflow
That extend that warming smile, beautiful face
Deepening shade of within
Her enchantment with embrace.

So smoothly they mirror the rise
Of the ocean waters taking light
Each morning toward evening wave
Flickering day, oceanic sight.

And so too is the shudder of her eye
Ease and impact of a hovering star
Felt to all privileged to such
So near and far.

Yet behind the warmth glows a soul
An enchanted lady; soft to touch, lucky to know
Smile to enhance; voice of choir
Peace with passion, yet still
Eyes; warmth of fire.
