Courtly Love

Embrace me with your intellect
Inseminate with your skill
Implant the sperm humanely
With wisdom let me fill
As we share intercourse
Of courtly love and such
Takes just one seed to sate me
Fruition will be much

metaphorically superb. I am very impressed with your poem; This is called a conceit.

Definition: A conceit is a kind of metaphor that compares two very unlike things in a surprising and clever way. Often, conceits are extended metaphors that dominate an entire passage or poem.

There is one thing you should look to,:

With wisdom let me fill
Share intercourse with me
Of courtly love and such

That with me caused a drag on the rhythm for me , how about,.

With wisdom let me fill
as we Share intercourse
Of courtly love and such


The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Thank you for your great comments. I didn't realize it was metaphorically superb that really shocked me but I love that outstanding opinion. I 'll always remember that. I will keep in mind all the comments you made though . Thank you, thank you, thank you!

than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
