Eyes of Innocence

Past the rocks that flank the road
Dawn by dawn I pass her abode
Whose visage adorns the tendrils and leaves
Through them her form beams and sieves.
In the eyes that glitter
There is an eloquence atwitter –
Unspoken but unrepressed,
It presses on me the trying test.
And I on my part, with all my might
Pray for the strength to battle the fright
With that of a conscience troubled and flawed,
Like the delinquent in the country outlawed,
To face her, who though wronged,
Holds aloft her comely countenance
Of unstained innocence.
