"TODAY, QUITE ACCIDENTALLY"
by Marion "Mac" McAnear

Today, quite accidentally, I determined
That your lips are as

Delicately shaped as the bridge
Of a fine violin
Filled with sweet music.

The day before it was your soft brown eyes
That caught me up
And set my heart beating faster
As to a gypsy rhythm.

Less---much less---than a week ago---
Absentmindedly, I hasten to add---
I noticed the incredibly beautiful
Curve of cheek, the soft fall of dark hair
(That I see yet in my dreams),
A small, pink alabaster ear---
All in excellent harmony!

Thus it must have been
In the Garden of Eden
As God composed his First Symphony!
