Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

This I Wish



__________________________________________
Let me stare at you
all life long ,
this I wish
my bashful love !

From half open
a lovely pair of eyes,
the nectar of your sight
fills,
one after another
shaky glasses of wine,
and yet I thirst
for more
this I wish ;

O you,
with eyes that resemble
glimmering fish of deep sea ;

When
on your smiling face
dances the glow
of the setting sun,
and your cheeks
blushing with red hot blood ,
this I wish ,
to be
a drop of tear 
from your eyes
and ere the end of journey
kiss you
a thousand times ;

O loveliest of all ,
when you look
into the starry sky,
the moon you see,
surrounded by dark clouds,
is nothing else
but the reflection
in the mirror of the sky -
of your angel face
covered with dark curly hair  --

And this I wish,
to pass my fingers
in the locks
of your silken hair
and just once
on your trembling lips
steal a passionate kiss ;

My love,
when in spring
the playful wind
lifts your upper garment,
my eyes rest, 
lo ! 
lovely breasts
smooth as velvet,
like a lotus
in full bloom ,

And this I wish,
to be a necklace
of white pearls
embracing you
till eternity
