Oh, the curl of her lips,
A subtle consonance eclipsed
Across the complexion of
Her mouth in passage
Shifts proportion set in drifting sway
Wavering to greet a glance
In a delicate dance
Of simpering play.
And stay would I
In this moment of late
Ere it a dream or reverie,
But alas, a simple instance
Of departing straits,
Ebb from encountering
Your smile again.
Forgive me for I only wish to share
One’s ponderance of your fair splendor.
Behind you I sat in the lessons of life
And through tedium discourse I often wondered
The place of being that was in front of me
With hair that bears the countenance
Of dreams in a stellar fashion;
A fancy that founded civilizations to pray.
Were her eyes an azure blue
I would turn away, ‘tis a usual
Occurrence these days!
I saw the hint of emerald or jade
Perhaps olive, a darker shade,
That glisten in celestial concordance
With the sun, divine.
Once more I must remark upon
The visions aglow atop your look,
A cool moon eclipsed by a fiery storm
Of red waves and flowing reactions
Of gold and scarlet hues.
Or about the lips in a simpering muse
To the tune of a friendly smile or ruse
In tune to an admirer’s ha.
I doubt you’d expect such record or
Alluring expression at your accord
But I must respect
The wandering arts of beauty, esteem,
In a world where magnificence is so universal,
Has lost the power to move the heart.
I must depart, but say I before I arrive
At another call for interruption,
Thou hast remarkable qualities
In proportion to such refined effects.
This past week, a Twitter follower let me know that I had forgotten to add “tags” to my Mimesis eBook on Amazon. I gave it some thought and added the tags: poetry, love poetry, satire, philosophy. I then realized I had not shared a love poem on this blog, yet. Although the above poem would be classified as a love poem, I view it as a poem of admiration and musing. Admiration poetry is unfortunately not a category on Amazon
