My Brown-Eyed Sue

Susan, bold as she can be,
Pretends no maiden modesty;
flaunting her charm,
city garden or farm,
She is a sight to see.

Brown gaze lifted toward the sky,
Bold as the sun, yet soft as a sigh;
sweet blossom of spring,
a pretty, young thing,
She sings, give love a try.

Susan, fresh as she can be,
Dances in fields wild and free,
bumble bees in her hair,
yellow skirts all a flair,
She is the love for me!

  1. Ahhhhh this is precious, very nice Quill, both your poem and the picture. Love a field of Brown eyed susans, don’t see them much here, used to have them in Mom’s garden.

  2. Very playful! I like it.
