Queer little deep brown almond eyes
Turned to me now with grave surprise
What the secrets tarrying there
Baffling a world's inquiring stare?
What is the wisdom so intense
Masked as a great grave innocence?
Born of the rich, romantic East,
Mysteries flash as fires released.
Reach me the depth that herein lies,
Queer little deep brown almond eyes.
Victor Kennedy (1925)
