Something I just wrote for a special lady... inspired by the song of solomon

How Thou Art Fair

O’ my beloved, thy beauty is as the fairest angels in Heaven. Thy locks are as the finest silk, as clouds of silver in the golden sky. How each glides with thine every step, it is as the feathers from the softest dove, and as thy lashes flutter; it is the same as her wings. O’ my beloved, how thou art fair! Thine eyes are as does', and shine with the lustre of ocean pearls. As the roses of a pasture do they fully bloom, and as the dawn do they possess the sky! O’ my beloved, thy glance is as a ray of sun upon the morning dew, gleaming upon my very soul! Behold, thy lips are rows of rubies! Thy cheeks inlaid with jewels! Thy neck is adorned with diamonds, and garlands of buttercups. O’ thy supple neck; it is as an elegant swan upon a loch, and tender as an olive branch upon the autumn. Thy skin is as the fruits of the finest wine, and thy breasts are as resting fawns. They are as sleeping doves, and lo; it is like a spring of fountains! How thy waist is ringed with ribbons and wreaths, as a pillar of floral arrangement. It is as an ewer warmed for a bath, and its contour is like a porcelain vase. Thou hath the hips of a blossom, and the curves of an harp. O' how she is fair! Thy back is as silver embroidery, with petals and precious stones. It is like a flowering dogwood upon the melting snow, and as the butterfly garden spring yarrows. O’ my beloved! How thy breech strides, it is as the hind of a young and graceful mare. It is as the pomegranates upon the hills, and lo; it sways as an arc at sea! It is as the ripest strawberries upon the vine, and as the bulbs of a golden tulip. It is like none other on the face of the Earth! O’ my beloved, thou art most fair!

You see. Now stuff like that makes me believe that you've actually been in love before! I like stuff that catches you up like that, very nice rhythm, nice flow to it. Well done Chief. Bravo!

I keep on editing it... almost seems like I'm turning her into some kind of creature by comparing her to all these different kinds of animals and plants...

Lol. Oil paintings are like that. You never really finish. There just comes a time where you have to walk away. But even then, there's just something more to add to it, to take away from it. Even after years, time changes the hues, a little thinner lets you jump right back into the mix. I guess a poem isnever really finished, not as long as the passion that spawned it is still alive ...

Here's another sappy little gay poem I just finished writing

All The Animals of The Earth Watch You Move

All the Animals of the Earth watch you move
to the tops of the trees, by the bottom of your shoes
All the critters scurry to make way in your view
and all the birds sing just to say their adieus

All the deer of the fields graze where you've stood
'cause the prints from your feet leave a trail that is good
and the plants sprout their shoots in the sands plodded grooves
Where the ants crawl in groups to taste your sweet fruits

While you walk the woods awe, and all the winds ooh
As you talk all the flocks sigh and swoon
Wagging all of their furry tails too
All the Animals of the Earth love you

When you curl and unfurl your tiny toes
To each sniffle of your little nose
From every flutter in your hearts pulse
They perk their ears, and hold their pose
Flapjack

I love it! :)

I don't find it sappy or gay, but then again many people do use those two terms to describe me pretty often... :lol:
