Jack Rollen


strong is her name
whose picture is that frame
love, kindness, virtue is her aim
don’t ask but believe
coz she’s good as I claim

her heart is of clay
her eyes of blue ray
she can’t go away
while i am at bay

her smile says it all
she’s down but stands tall
don’t matter if i fall
she’s here when I call

in rain she came
in thunders of flame
the sky is to blame
but her love I acclaim

the clouds cotton made
a sky white as snow
who’s knocking at the door
sweet chorus to my ear!

The joy I couldn’t bare
her loving eyes to stare
that embrace warm and fair
cold weather but hot air!
