A Portrait Of My Love

My friend, fair of face
A gentle smile, full of grace
Lips that blow a kiss of charm
Smeared with fragrant healing balm.

My love, coyly sighs,
Rosy cheeks and deep blue eyes
Beauteous and quick to please
Melting me with quiet ease.

My bride, raven hair
Draped around her shoulders bare
Brushed with hands of ivory
Softly tied with purity.

My mate, ample breast
Clothed in linen, cotton dressed
Skin as pale as satin moth
Underneath the flimsy cloth.

My life evermore,
Lived with one that I adore
Forever in her caress
Filled with joy and happiness

Sweet blush of rose
the moth its gentle touch
this poem says that much
a love so transparent
delicate like gossamer
upon the grass in dew,
you sensed a pastel view
of sentiment
so lovely too.

Dear Mand.
from Ann.

"The image of yourself which you see in a mirror Is dead,
but the reflection of the moon on water, lives." Kenzan.

Woow! I love your comment. ( poem ). Your knowledge of words amazes me!! "delicate like gossamer upon the grass of dew". Fabulous! You should be famous - you are inspiring and inspire. Love your words Ann of Norway.

A gentle poem, but well constructed.
I like the quiet regimen upon which you have built this:
the discipline is apparent in the opening lines of each verse.
Yet, the overriding feeling is one of gentle warmth.
I enjoyed this read.

Thank you Psyve, I don't know what to say except thank you for your lovely encouraging comment!

I have a great big smile on my face!!

Loads of love
