Singing The Glories Of Your Wondrous Charm. A Loving Dedication to ThreeKeys
The Light of my Love
There stood my Beloved, glowing in the moonlight,
Her beauty enshrined within my core.
The light of the stars softened her cheeks,
As butterflies and fireflies danced
Within the rainbow of Her beauty.
Like a nourishing and life-giving fragrance,
She decorated the Love-garlands of my Heart.
Our melliferous words, like a honeycomb,
Was enough to seal the delivery of a kiss,
Planted upon the sanctity of Her inner Citadel,
As we entwined in the speechless hours of the morn.
My Light; my Pride; my Joy …
My Rays of golden Sunbeams!
Like the jet-stream spouting from a living spring,
So do You copiously exude,
The smile of Da Vinci’s Mona in my Soul.
Now I bask in a paragon of Bliss,
Soaked in the unfettered Delight of Your heavenly Peace.
Come! My blue-eyed damsel of the celestial realm,
Do transport Yourself, as wafted roses on my palm,
All singing the glories of Your wondrous charm.
